Nice people with common sense

"Isn't it always true? Heart is what drives us and determines our faith. That is what I need for my characters in my books: A passionate heart. I need mavericks, dissidents, adventurers, outsiders, and rebels, who ask questions, bend the rules, and take risks. [...] Nice people with common sense do not make interesting characters, they only make good former spouses." -- Isabel Allende
