Her mouth never curved into a smile. God, it seemed, had withheld that possibility.... She was a beam of starlight trapped in flesh and awaiting only the moment when it would continue on its journey into forever. ~Tim Willocks, The Religion

After a certain number of years, our faces become our biographies.  ~Cynthia Ozick, The Paris Review
