"It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. " -- Rose Kennedy



“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. ”  -- Plato



“The life of the dead is set in the memory of the living. ”  -- Marcus Tullius Cicero



“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love. ”  -- Washington Irving



“We all wear masks and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing our own skin.”  -- André Berthiaume



“I am an invisible man. No I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe: Nor am I one of your Hollywood movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids - and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, simply because people refuse to see me.”  -- Ralph Ellison



“Without knowledge, life is no more than the shadow of death.”  -- Molière



“Everyone calls himself a friend, but only a fool relies on it: nothing is commoner than the name, nothing rarer than the thing.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine

Dead Guilty (Diane Fallon Forensic Investigation, No. 2)

Dead Guilty - Beverly Connor I really loved this book. And how the author manages to keep it all interesting and not feel cluttered with all the directions the book took. I like that Diane both oversees the museum but also the crime scenes and the like. It makes it a lot more exciting. I enjoy reading about all the characters in the book. I think they give the series more depth. I think Mike is great. Not too sure of Frank, but that may be because there's hardly any of him in it and when there is, well that's just enough for me. I need some more connection in that area. However the plot side is just amazing. And diverse. I'm looking forward to reading the next book.
