What a month! Here are a few passages that caught my eye:
Valentine did not turn to face her husband; she knew from his voice exactly what expression would be on his face, and so she smiled back at him without turning around. After twenty-five years of marriage, they could see each other clearly without having to look.
Orson Scott Card, Xenocide
We all set out to change things when we start writing. We often forget that the person we change most is ourselves.
Rohan, A Learning A Day
Great stories happen to those who can tell them.
