It unleashes the tongue, teasing out secrets you never meant to tell, secrets you never even knew. It shouts, rants, whispers. It speaks of great plans, tragic loves, and terrible betrayals. It screams with laughter. It chuckles softly to itself. It weeps in front of its own reflection. It revives summers long past and memories best forgotten. Every bottle a whiff of other times, other places, everyone…a humble miracle” ~ Joanne Harris

I hadn’t even been looking, not for you, and now you were my heart’s desire.” ~ Daniel Handler
