Katherine Neville

  • Rules are like flagpoles in a slalom race: you observe their presence religiously, skirt around them as closely as possible, and never let them cut your speed.

  • Privacy — like eating and breathing — is one of life's basic requirements.

  • Truth has divine properties, and the ability to see it is a gift that's given, not acquired.

  • If you must live in a city, New York is the only city in the world.
