“Life may not be the party we hoped for... but while we're here we may as well dance.”
Jeanne C. Stein, Blood Drive

“History is just the present in retrospect. Times change but people do not.”
Jeanne C. Stein, Blood Bond

“The GPS still has return coordinates programmed, although when I crank over the engine, I get the "reprogramming route" message. I hate the tone of these things-it manages to be mechanical yet condescending at the same time. All systems have it. Some frustrated engineer's idea of a joke, I suppose.”
Jeanne C. Stein, Crossroads
