William C Samples Quotes

"But it was not what I wanted to do! I wanted to star in a silent movie and vamp the sheik, take a trip to the South Seas … walk naked in the sand and surf … write a novel about it. Be the Empress of the Galaxy, be discovered by a hero that would ravish me, and take me away on high adventure!

Journey to Europe, speak flawless French, and become the courtesan in the country chalet where all the real people came to party." She laughed again.

Quotes About Endicott

"Suddenly a force greater than my common sense—which, Ill admit, has been pretty faulty lately, propels me—and I find myself creeping up the long staircase to the forbidden second floor. I need to see Michaels room. I need to find out if he is a secret slob, or if theres even more interesting evidence of whom he is up there. Im not expecting to find anything big, like a literal skeleton in his closet. But I am going to find it, whatever it is. And I will know once and for all who he is. I make it to the landing when I hear a burst of barking below me and I freeze. Someone has let a dog in. Which means that some member of the Endicott family is actually in the house. Which means that one of Michaels parents is about to catch me snooping." - Author: Stephanie Wardrop

When youre talking about war, about so many thousands dead, so many families shattered on both sides, how can anyone claim victory?" - Author: Wafaa Bilal
