Quote of the Day

It's a terrible thing to have to admit, I thought, but I'd be a great deal better off without my family. If I hadn't any family, I wouldn't be sitting here with my life ruined. If I hadn't any family, if I were an orphan, I'd be going to the dance tonight with Edward, I wouldn't be sitting here with a broken heart...

From FAMILY TROUBLE, a short story published in 1961.
