Quote of the Day – Serafina and the Black Cloak

Quote of the Day
“The God’s-honest truth was that she didn’t even know what a friend was, other than what she’d read in books. If you meet someone face-to-face and they don’t hiss at you and bite you, does that mean you’re friends?” –SERAFINA AND THE BLACK CLOAK by Robert Beatty

“All of us worry about what other people think, even if we do not have to. It was easy to tell somebody to ignore that sort of thing; it was much harder to put such advice into practice.” –THE GREAT CAKE MYSTERY by Alexander McCall Smith
