Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

"Tiffany liked fire. It was her favorite element. It was considered so potent, and so scary to the powers of darkness, that people would even get married by jumping over a fire together.*

*Obviously, Tiffany thought, when jumping over a fire together, one ought to be concerned about wearing protective clothing and having people with a bucket of water on hand, just in case. Witches may be a lot of things, but first and foremost, they are practical."

           --Terry Pratchett, I Shall Wear Midnight
