“Reading was not a fallback position for her but an ideal state of being.”
― Laura Lippman, What the Dead Know

 “…Baltimore. It’s imperfect. Boy, is it imperfect. And there are parts of its past that make you wince. It’s not all marble steps and waitresses calling you ‘hon,’ you know. Racial strife in the sixties, the riots during the Civil War. F. Scott Fitzgerald said it was civilized and gay, rotted and polite. The terms are slightly anachronistic now, but I think he was essentially right.”
― Laura Lippman, Hardly Knew Her

“I hate to think how many minutes of my life I’ve spent on goddamn hold. I want those minutes back. When death comes for me, I want back every minute I was on hold in traffic jams, and behind people with eleven items in the ten items or less line.”
― Laura Lippman, In Big Trouble

 “There’s a serendipity to real life that the Internet can’t duplicate. Do you use the library? For anything? Well, sometimes you end up picking up the book next to the one you were looking for, and it’s that book that changes your life.”

 “The past was worth remembering and knowing in its own right. It was not behind us, never truly behind us, but under us, holding us up, a foundation for all that was to come and everything that had ever been.”
― Laura Lippman, In a Strange City

“There’s always time to read. Don’t trust a writer who doesn’t read. It’s like eating food prepared by a cook who doesn’t eat.”
― Laura Lippman

 “There are, of course, an infinite number of places where one is not, yet only one place where one actually is.”
― Laura Lippman, What the Dead Know

“Whatever you want, at any moment, someone else is getting it. Whatever you have, someone else is longing for.”

One Final Bonus – Laura Lippman Quote 

“But the central branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library was still a place of wonders to Tess, even if the book budget had been slashed and the hours cut. Her parents had made a lot of mistakes, a fact Tess compulsively shared on first dates, but she gave them credit for doing one thing right: Starting when she was eight, they gave her a library card and dropped her off at the downtown Pratt every Saturday while they shopped. Twenty-one years later, Tess still entered through the children’s entrance on the side, pausing to toss a penny in the algae-coated fish pond, then climbing the stairs to the main hall. If she could be married here, she would.”
― Laura Lippman, Baltimore Blues
