To good and evil. We have more of both those, I must believe, than our primitive parents." ~Randolph Henry Ash

  94. "What Stephen meant to say, I've always assumed, was that my mother looked beautiful. Or heroic, perhaps. Or courageous. Because my mother did look, at least to me, like all of those things.
