Book cover for Everything I Never Told You
Lydia is dead. But they don’t know this yet.
Laura Lou
One of my favorite opening lines of a book ever.
Arrigo Boito
“When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew.”
Arrigo Boito

Bill Bryson
“It is not true that the English invented cricket as a way of making all other human endeavors look interesting and lively; that was merely an unintended side effect. ...It is the only sport that incorporates meal breaks. It is the only sport that shares its name with an insect. It is the only sport in which spectators burn as many calories as the players-more if they are moderately restless.”
Bill Bryson, In a Sunburned Country

Bill Bryson
“18th century scientists, the French in particular, seldom did things simply if an absurdly demanding alternative was available.”
Bill Bryson

Beryl Markham
“There are as many Africas as there are books about Africa -- and as many books about it as you could read in a leisurely lifetime. Whoever writes a new one can afford a certain complacency in the knowledge that his is a new picture agreeing with no one else's, but likely to be haugthily disagreed with by all those who believed in some other Africa. ... Being thus all things to all authors, it follows, I suppose, that Africa must be all things to all readers.

Africa is mystic; it is wild; it is a sweltering inferno; it is a photographer's paradise, a hunter's Valhalla, an escapist's Utopia. It is what you will, and it withstands all interpretations. It is the last vestige of a dead world or the cradle of a shiny new one. To a lot of people, as to myself, it is just 'home.”
Beryl Markham, West with the Night

Julia Quinn
“She hated that she was still so desperate for a glimpse of him, but it had been this way for years.”
Julia Quinn, The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever
