I'm fairly certain I'm not the only author guilty of coming up with a quote that HAS to go into the manuscript and then working the story around the quote. Such was the case for "Quest for Leviathan." The quote, in essence, is not a new quote nor is it original to me. It comes from a thought I've heard portrayed in sermons and stood out to me as mind-blowing and very necessary for us as humans to understand. I was very happy to weave it into the wisdom of Joed, as he counseled Anath.
