Laura Lippman

  • ... Tess had never met a rut she didn't like.

  • ... stinginess seemed instinctive to him. Darwinian even. He hadn't gotten to his current size by sharing.

  • ... it's smarter to be lucky than it's lucky to be smart.

  • There was nothing more dangerous than people convinced of their own good intentions.

  • ... how magnanimous was a gesture if one were constantly aware of its magnanimity?

Laura Lippman, U.S. writer

(1959)
