“If you have one teapot,” he said, pouring hot water over tea leaves, “that will do you quite well. How much does he lack himself who must have a lot of things?” “You’re quoting Sen Rikyū,”
Gigi Pandian, The Accidental Alchemist

“Different ages, classes, languages, races, religions, nationalities, occupations, passions. The more I saw people’s superficial differences, the more I learned those things weren’t important.”
Gigi Pandian, The Masquerading Magician

“There’s power in words,” I said softly. “Always remember that.”
Gigi Pandian, The Masquerading Magician

Larissa Reinhart Thanks for your friendship. Your book looks great! I grew up an Elizabeth Peters fan and had a strong interest in archaeology (minored in anthropology & majored in history/art history, even). Can't wait to read them!

BTW, I loved The Night Circus, too!


Catrina Roallos dear gigi, thank you for being my friend in the virtual (as well as the real) world. heart, catrina
