And I'm always moved to wonderment
That what chills the finger not a bit
Is so frigid upon the fundament.

~ Ogden Nash

~ Cathy Rindner Tempelsman

I, for one, get rather annoyed when I settle into a nice bubble bath with some Belgian chocolate and a mystery at my side only to discover that all of the characters in the latter are still alive at the end.

~ Miriam Nadel
