Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

The Leveridges were moving away, going to Montana. When Lyle had told Amanda they were leaving, she had felt terrible. She'd said, "We'll be friends when we grow up anyhow." But Lyle had answered, "We'll live far apart and never even know each other."

Amanda realized he was probably right. It seemed as if everybody but her was always right.
