Maybe just shy of 4 stars. I didn't love it quite as much as Eat, Pray, Love, but I did love it. I know this to be true because when I hear the name Alma Whittaker I feel glad. What a great character! I enjoyed getting to know her and follow her thro...more

Once upon a time, this book rocked my little fifth grade world. It inspired me to think and dream and write. Rereading it as an adult, it doesn't have the same powerful impact as it did once upon a time, but it has my respect. You can see the roots o...more

Marianne Williamson
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
