Jan Alexander

  • She had no great religious convictions, and little interest in the supernatural. She had never really given any thought to what she believed in, except that she believed you could buy anything that anybody could possibly want at Bergdorf's or at Bloomingdale's.

  • ... the supernatural, after all, is only something for which we haven't yet uncovered the natural laws ...

  • With any journey there was a feeling of expectancy, however muted.

  • Sometimes we are like the man who pushes a cart down a hill and then jumps into it as it gets rolling. We are responsible, of course, for getting it started like that. But once we've got it rolling, we can't stop it with the same ease. We are caught up in something, and we must go on. Our only hope is that finally the cart will arrive at the bottom of the hill and stop of its own accord and we can get out.

Jan Alexander, U.S. writer
