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

Uhmma said her hands were her life. But for us, she only wished to see our hands holding books. You must use this, she said and pointed to her mind. Uhmma's hands worked hard to make sure our hands would not resemble hers.

It takes only a glance at our nails, our knuckles, our palms to know Uhmma succeeded.

           --An Na, A Step from Heaven (Front Street, 2001)
