“Ahhh. Bed, book, kitten, sandwich. All one needed in life, really.”
Jacqueline Kelly, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate

“One day I would have all the books in the world, shelves and shelves of them. I would live my life in a tower of books. I would read all day long and eat peaches.

Jacqueline Kelly, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate

“It's amazing what you can see when you just sit quietly and look.”
Jacqueline Kelly, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate
