“But, Miranda, you’ve just come to Pittsburgh. Don’t you want to settle down here?” She scoffed. “Settle down?” What was that? “Perhaps you could meet a nice young man. You could fall in love and have—” she stopped herself. “Children of my own?” It wasn’t the first time Miranda had heard that. “Amy is my child, Barbara.” And as far as falling in love, it would be a cold day in Hades before she let herself be so vulnerable again.”
Linsey Lanier, Someone Else's Daughter

“pulled into a dark tunnel. I found myself hurtling down an almost vertical dirt path, skipping over rocks and dirt patches like Indiana Jones until I hit bottom with a thud. Six years as a private investigator and I’d never fallen down a tree before. I caught my breath, got to my feet and dusted myself off. Good thing I never dress up for work. My old jeans and boots were none the worse for wear. I was wondering how I’d get back up to the surface when I noticed the flicker of golden sconces on”
Linsey Lanier, The Clever Detective

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
