“Every now and then, I'll run into someone who claims not to like chocolate, and while we live in a country where everyone has the right to eat what they want, I want to say for the record that I don't trust these people, that I think something is wrong with them, and that they're probably - and this must be said - total duds in bed.”
Steve Almond, Candyfreak: A Journey Through the Chocolate Underbelly of America

“We need books...because we are all, in the private kingdoms of our hearts, desperate for the company of a wise, true friend.”
Steve Almond

“The answer is that we don't choose our freaks, they choose us.”
Steve Almond, Candyfreak: A Journey Through the Chocolate Underbelly of America
