“I don’t have space in my head to put up with harmless old gits trying to make me feel bad,” said Amina, folding her arms. “I’ve learned to tell the difference between the people who can really hurt you and those who just want to look down their noses.” – Helen Simonson, Major Pettigrew’ Last Stand
“Only sometimes when we pick and choose among the rules we discover later that we have set aside something precious in the process.” – Helen Simonson, Major Pettigrew’ Last Stand
“Life does often get in the way of one’s reading.” – Helen Simonson, Major Pettigrew’ Last Stand
