Quotation of the Week
Nobody believed they were real any more except for an occasional child or an even more occasional worker of evil,
these being the only ones with imagination enough to admit to the possibility of something even more amazing in the world
than those commonplace marvels which it spreads so carelessly before us every day.”
--Natalie Babbitt in The Search for Delicious
