Famous quotes by donald e. westlake:

    Sickness comes to us all, Mr. Dillon.... We never know when, we never know why, we never know how. The only blessed thing we know is it’ll come at the most inconvenient, unexpected time. Just when you’ve got tickets to the World Series. And that’s the way the permanent waves.
    Donald E. Westlake (b. 1933)
