“They picked up shells and sea glass, pebbles smooth and white. The wind blew and the surf hissed warm over their toes, sucked the sand from under their soles. The rhythm, the pulse of the sea soothed and electrified.”
Terri-Lynne DeFino, The Bar Harbor Retirement Home for Famous Writers

“Alfonse gave her his words, a mad jumble that didn't sound as lovely coming from his mouth as it would have flying out of the tips of his fingers.”

“A book is like a woman. She should leave your bed with her hair tangled and her clothes on backward. A book without creases is a book that has never known passion.”
