Book cover for March
I have not scaled the cliffs of knowledge, only meandered in the foothills. If I have reached any heights at all in learning, it is as a sparrow-hawk who encountered a favorable breeze that bore it briefly aloft.”

Margaret Powell
“People say, ‘I suppose you got bored with life,’ but it wasn’t as sudden as that. The seeds are in you and although it may take ten, twenty, or forty years, eventually you can do what you wanted to do at the beginning.”
Margaret Powell, Below Stairs: The Classic Kitchen Maid's Memoir That Inspired "Upstairs, Downstairs" and "Downton Abbey"

Sarah Perry
“Martha says I never looked odder or uglier, but you know I’ve always thought beauty a curse and am more than happy to dispense with it completely. Sometimes I forget that I’m a woman—at least—I forget to THINK OF MYSELF AS A WOMAN. All the obligations and comforts of womanhood seem to have nothing to do with me now. I’m not sure how I am supposed to behave and I’m not sure I would, if I knew.”
Sarah Perry, The Essex Serpent

Lori Berhon
“As a sign of our renewed pledge to keep moving forward in the New Year, Pinnacle is eliminating the BORING conference room monikers of yesteryear in favor of BOLD new values-driven naming. In addition to Kippy’s ENERGY, we’ve got ADVANCEMENT (Main) and PERSISTENCE (Training Room).”
Lori Berhon, Under the Bus

Lori Berhon
“You scrape yourself out of bed, exhausted from all you tried to do over the weekend, from trying to waste not so much as a quarter of an hour of the two days allotted for your real life. The life you were supposed to have is lived in tiny slices of time between each night’s dinner and sleep, and in those two precious days you pay for by working the other five for someone else’s dreams.”
Lori Berhon, Under the Bus

Lori Berhon
“The Gong lived in the Pit. It made a loud, brassy "nnnnnnngggggggggg" that set everyone's teeth on edge. Any deal over 50K per annum, the salesman got to take a whack at it, so that the whole company would know he’d landed a big fish.”
Lori Berhon, Under the Bus

I don't write. (Horror)
