Quotation of the Week
A car was no more than a machine,
and one might think that men would be interested in washing machines or irons, for that matter.
Yet they were not.
You never saw men standing around talking about washing machines.”
--Alexander McCall Smith, Morality for Beautiful Girls
= Available at Sembach Library
