Illuminated Manuscript Quotes

There are no coincidences", Silette wrote. "Only mysteries that havent been solved, clues that havent been placed. Most are blind to the language of the bird overheard, the leaf in our path, the phonographic record stuck in a groove, the unknown caller on the phone. They dont see the omens. They dont know how to read the signs. To them life is like a book with blank pages. But to the detective, it is an illuminated manuscript of mysteries.

The unknown life of the maker is evanescent in its brevity, but the work of his or her hands and heart remains.
