“I must tell you this, Maggie. Your letters are my lifeline. Your threat to stop them terrified me. Never stop writing to me, I implore you.”
Theresa Breslin, Remembrance

“The Maestro spoke again. "When we are not, at what point do we become?"

I could not reply. For I had grasped no shape of his thoughts. I understood neither what he said nor his intent behind it.”
Theresa Breslin, The Medici Seal

“Lying eats into the soul. If it becomes a habit it frays the edge of your spirit. Truth telling, although sometimes harder to do, strengthens your heart. It serves a person ill not to tell the truth.”
Theresa Breslin, The Medici Seal
