“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”


~ Eleanor Roosevelt


“Los Angeles was the kind of place where everybody was from somewhere else and nobody really droppped anchor. It was a transient place. People drawn by the dream, people running from the nightmare. Twelve million people and all of them ready to make a break for it if necessary. Figuratively, literally, metaphorically -- any way you want to look at it -- everbody in L.A. keeps a bag packed. Just in case.” 


~ Michael Connelly, The Brass Verdict


The 1940s
