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

I wanted him to stop telling me who I was when I knew better. He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I wanted him to be something he wasn't. We were so far apart. And yet, even though I knew he was wrong, He was my dad, and I wanted him to be right. More than anything, I wanted him to have all the answers.

           --Jack Gantos, Joey Pigza Loses Control (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2000)
