Quote du jour/Dorothy L. Sayers

Books are like lobster-shells. We surround ourselves with 'em, and then we grow out of 'em and leave 'em behind, as evidence of our earlier stages of development.
Dorothy Leigh Sayers,
The Unpleasantness at the Bellona Club


  1. Yep, I have plenty of Lobster Shells around. :)

  2. Such a great quote. I am so pleased to find your blog.

  3. I love Dorothy Sayers and I love this quote ... am so pleased to find your blog! (sorry to have nessed up the first comment!).


Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
