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


"When he grew up, Cain Lankin was an outcast, taller than any other man, this as bones, and ugly as sin. Folk shunned him and began calling him Long Lankin. He did some bad things--a bit of thieving to get food, killed animals in the  night. They said he ate them raw and got a taste for blood."
           --Lindsey Barraclough, Long Lankin
