“The men who cannot laugh at themselves frighten me even more than those who laugh at everything.”
Anne Perry, The Whitechapel Conspiracy

“We all try to forget what hurts us, it is sometimes the only way we can continue.”
Anne Perry

“Please don’t think so lightly of liking someone. It’s terribly important. It is a kind of loving, you know, and one that frequently lasts a lot longer than romance. You can fall out of love, as well in. Most of us do, especially if you don’t actually like the person as well. It doesn’t always grow into love by any means, but sometimes it does.”
Anne Perry, Pentecost Alley
