From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler
"You might say that I'm honest about everything except cards. For some reason I'm helpless about cheating at cards." (9.113)
Just as they had lost all their feelings of urgency, they had also lost all thoughts of me. Finding a secret can make everything else unimportant, you know. (9.200)

"No," I answered abruptly. (9.244-245)
