Quote for the Day

Confessing your wishes, your real wishes, even to yourself, is dangerous. If they can be realized, which they often can, stating them confronts you with your fear of trying. In other words, with your own cowardice. So you prefer not to think about them, or you tell yourself they're impossible, and grown-up people don't wish for impossible things.
-- from Reasonable Doubts by Gianrico Carofiglio (Bitter Lemon Press), translated from the Italian by Howard Curtis.
