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

Cinderella Skeleton,
Ignoring the thump of her footless stump,
Reached her coach and cried, "Away!
I must be home by break of day!"
They raced pell-mell past the palace gate;
The prince kept pleading, "Lady, wait!"
In his hand, a foot -- in his throat, a lump.

           --Robert D. San Souci, Cinderella Skeleton (Harcourt, 2000)
