 “Today the average lifetime is over seventy years, long enough for a great number of accomplishments. But this development has occurred within the present century. Before that, people tended to die much younger than they do today, and among those early deaths were those of many brilliant and talented people who had much to give the world. It is those people to whom I reach out. It is to them I offer the opportunity to return.”
― Lois Duncan, Down a Dark Hall

 “We are the wise.
Do not envy us—
We who are too wise to draw near

We who are too wise to live
Lest we should die.”

One Final Bonus – Lois Duncan Quote 

“Why are murder mysteries so popular? There’s a 3-part “formula” (if you want to call it that) for a genre novel: (1) Someone the reader likes and relates to (2) overcomes increasingly difficult obstacles (3) to reach an important goal. The more important the goal, the stronger the novel. And the most important goal that any of us have is survival. That’s why murder mysteries are more gripping than a story titled “Who Stole My TV Set.”
― Lois Duncan
