Tricia showed up last week with this quote from Pearl North's Libyrinth:
The wind howled and the flames roared, but the books, as they died, merely fell silent.And Nandini, who has since moved one step closer to this dream (congrats, Nandini!), quotes from Little Women:
Six weeks is a long time to wait, and a still longer time for a girl to keep a secret, but Jo did both, and was just beginning to give up all hope of ever seeing her manuscript again, when a letter arrived which almost took her breath away, for on opening it, a check for a hundred dollars fell into her lap
Here is my line this week:
...that at some unspecified future moment the continuous rehearsal which is my life, with its so many misreadings, its slips and fluffs, will be done with...what I am looking forward to is a moment of earthly expression...I shall be expressed, totally. I shall be delivered, like a noble closing speech. I shall be, in a word, said.What caught you this week?
