“In my opinion, sexiness comes down to three things: chemistry, sense of humor, and treatment of waitstaff at restaurants.”
Rhoda Janzen, Mennonite in a Little Black Dress: A Memoir of Going Home

“Is it ever really a waste of time to love someone, truly and deeply, with everything you have?”
Rhoda Janzen

“I think maybe I'd still nod and smile and have lunch with him. I think maybe I'd still go to the Noam Chomsky documentary later that evening. And maybe I'd even marry him a couple of weeks later. Is it ever really a waste of time to love someone, truly and deeply, with everything you have?”
