Quotation of the Week
“To see that your life is a story while you’re in the middle of living it may be a help to living it well.
It’s unwise, though, to think you know how it’s going to go, or how it’s going to end.
That’s to be known only when it’s over.”
—Ursula K. LeGuin in Gifts
= Available at Sembach Library
