A Good Quote

A good quote from “Kind of Cruel: A Zailer and Waterhouse Mystery (A Zailer & Waterhouse Mystery Book 7)” by Sophie Hannah –

“People who overvalue family—and someone with no friends has to fall into that category—almost always esteem the family they were born into more highly than the family they were instrumental in making. Easy to see why: their birth family was where the importance of family above all else was instilled in them, the notion of “Everything you could possibly need and want is here within these walls, so there’s no need to venture out.””
