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



           . . . I am flowers and thorn,
     born of Beauty and the Beast, and torn,
     sometimes, between their sweet and sharp,
     between head-sure and heart-fair. Where
     is happily ever after, here or there? 
     The castle is secure, yet leaving it,
     alluring.

           --Betsy Hearne, “Story Born,” from Polaroid and Other Poems of View
