“Well, for instance, why does everything always have to be written from the point of view of a human being? Why not write from the point of view of a cat? Or a tree?”
Austin Scott Collins, Crass Casualty (The Victoria da Vinci novels)

“I do not run from beauty, my own or anyone else's. If it is a gift, I claim it and I use it. And if it is a curse, well...I claim it and use it." Victoria da Vinci”
Austin Scott Collins, Dicing Time for Gladness

“Is it more virtuous, more noble, to suffer silently with brave, graceful dignity? Or is it preferable to fight an utterly hopeless battle against the inevitability of an insignificant, mediocre, obscure, mundane existence?”
Austin Scott Collins, Dicing Time for Gladness
