Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another What! You
“Friendship ... is born at the moment when one man says to another "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Elmore Leonard
“It doesn't have to make sense, it just has to sound like it does.”
Elmore Leonard, Freaky Deaky

Emily Dickinson
“That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet.”
Emily Dickinson

Elmore Leonard
“I started out of course with Hemingway when I learned how to write. Until I realized Hemingway doesn't have a sense of humor. He never has anything funny in his stories.”
Elmore Leonard

Kristine Kathryn Rusch
“Like Elmore Leonard and Donald Westlake and Robert B. Parker and oh so many others, I want to die with my boots on, facedown on my keyboard if possible, in the middle of a sentence.”
