Favorite quotes:

♫   When you love someone, you love the person as they are, and not as you’d like them to be.”
― Leo Tolstoy

♫  Thank you for sending me a copy of your book—I’ll waste no time reading it.
—Moses Hadas

♫  If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil
deeds and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and
destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of
every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?
