Quote of the Moment:

''[Grace says that] 'a story isn't a story unless it's two stories...' [She says that] 'every story has two worlds which collide, or pass by and don't hit each other, or scrape or whatever. That intersection...is the story.'"
--GRACE PALEY, as quoted by a student of hers in a 4/13/86 Nina Darnton article in the New York Times.
