“I like the way we talk to each other. It feels honest. It was different with Manuel. One of us always had to win. Husbands and wives do that, worry more about being right than being truthful.”
Richard Lange

“His desolation is as beautiful as a broken mirror.”
Richard Lange

“Being nothing special is nothing special.”
Richard Lange, Sweet Nothing
