“Of course I'm not going to look through the keyhole. That's something only servants do. I'm going to hide in the bay window.”
Penelope Farmer, Charlotte Sometimes

“Where you some particular person because people recognized you as that?”
Penelope Farmer, Charlotte Sometimes

“And, she thought uncomfortably, what would happen if people did not recognize you? Would you know who you were yourself? If tomorrow they started to call her Vanessa or Janet or Elizabeth, would she know how to be, how to feel like, Charlotte? Were you some particular person only because people recognized you as that?”
Penelope Farmer, Charlotte Sometimes
