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

"However, then, as now, I was able to console myself with the reflection that an English gentlewoman can rise above any circumstances, given intelligence and a loaded pistol. Both of these properties I had, and, tucking the latter into my muff, I set off to find some quiet spot in which to exercise the former."

           --Philip Pullman, Count Karlstein   (Alfred A. Knopf, 1998)
