“I find it almost impossible to throw a book away. Anyway, what some call hoarding, others might call building a library. So, I can justify my books. I believe I justify them in a perfectly rational way.”
Joanne Limburg, The Woman Who Thought too Much: A Memoir

“Sometimes, what starts out as a drug's side effect can end up as its main therapeutic purpose. Iproniazid was originally prescribed to treat tuberculosis; when so many patients taking it grew so cheerful that the effect had to be more coincidental, one of the first effective anti-depressants was born.”
Joanne Limburg, The Woman Who Thought too Much: A Memoir

“But in the end I had to acknowledge that, whether I was emotionally challenged or not, there was no avoiding at least some of the responsibility for my own behaviour, not least if I wanted to be the protagonist of my own life, rather than some pitiful apology for a character who never acted unless she was acted upon.”
