I went slowly through this, though it is a quick read. I'm grateful that I did. It took me through my aunt's cancer death to my uncle's cancer death. It helped me look at my mortality and reflect on what it means to live and die and love well. The un ...more

The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm by Jacob Grimm

These are poetry, litany. The words of the people. Very inspired especially by the Grimm brothers' commitment to gathering these stories and respect of language.

Katherine Mansfield
“I have made it a rule of my life never to regret and never to look back. Regret is an appalling waste of energy... you can't build on it; it's only good for wallowing in.”
Katherine Mansfield

Katherine Mansfield
“I imagine I was always writing. Twaddle it was, too. But better far write twaddle or anything, anything, than nothing at all.”
Katherine Mansfield

Naomi Shihab Nye
“Anyone who says, “Here’s my address,
write me a poem,” deserves something in reply.
So I’ll tell a secret instead:
poems hide. In the bottoms of our shoes,
they are sleeping. They are the shadows
drifting across our ceilings the moment
before we wake up. What we have to do
is live in a way that lets us find them.”
Naomi Shihab Nye, Red Suitcase

Katherine Mansfield
“I adore Life. What do all the fools matter and all the stupidity. They do matter but somehow for me they cannot touch the body of Life. Life is marvellous. I want to be deeply rooted in it - to live - to expand - to breathe in it - to rejoice - to share it. To give and to be asked for Love.”
Katherine Mansfield

Ernest Hemingway
“As a writer, you should not judge, you should understand.”
Ernest Hemingway
