    Edith: [laughing] Fool!

    Reginald Berkeley (1890 N1935)

    Do we write books so that they shall merely be read? Don’t we also write them for employment in the household? For one that is read from start to finish, thousands are leafed through, other thousands lie motionless, others are jammed against mouseholes, thrown at rats, others are stood on, sat on, drummed on, have gingerbread baked on them or are used to light pipes.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    Janie works hard, of course, and she’s a good wife and mother, but do you know she’s never once made a gingerbread house with her children?
    Mildred Hastings (b. 1924)
