Not always happy but always happy to be Catholic.
That's what literature is. It's the people who went before us, tapping out messages from the past, from beyond the grave, trying to tell us about life and death! Listen to them!
Connie Willis, Passage
Oh that is such a great quote. I've never heard of her before, but looking her up I see she's SciFi writer. I will have to post that on my blog.
Willis writes both humorous and serious novels. My favorite humorous one is Bellwether which is about fads. Doomsday Book and Passages are serious. I highly recommend all three.
