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


Here's what really bothers me: It's not that I told someone about Sari and David; it's why I told. Because I wanted to feel important. Because I wanted to feel like I was more in the know than Erica Trager, more powerful than David, more fascinating than Sari. More something than every one of them. I wanted to feel like I had something to say. Instead of listening all the time.
