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



"Instinctively, I touch the scab, which makes her touch her eye. It occurs to me that if we kissed now, we'd be like a folded map of America. My Pennsylvania scab next to her New Jersey black eye. I wonder, then, how many other kids could join in. Where are the Montanas and the Colorados? Where is Vermont? Florida? How many maps could we make?"
           --A.S. King, Everybody See the Ants
