Don't you know that boys don't cry?' Adam grinned.
'Shall I tell you something I've only recently discovered,' I replied, not attempting to hide the tears rolling down my face and not the least bit ashamed of them. 'Boys don't cry, but real men do.
Malorie Blackman

It's poor judgment', said Grandpa 'to call anything by a name. We don't know what a hobgoblin or a vampire or a troll is. Could be lots of things. You can't heave them into categories with labels and say they'll act one way or another. That'd be silly. They're people. People who do things. Yes, that's the way to put it. People who *do* things.Ray Bradbury

My grandfather would have loved to have met you," he told her huskily. "He would have called you 'She Moves Trees Out of His Path.' "

She looked lost, but his da laughed. He'd known the old man, too.

"He called me 'He Who Must Run into Trees,'" Charles explained, and in a spirit of honesty, a need for his mate to know who he was, he continued, "or sometimes 'Running Eagle.' "

" 'Running Eagle'?" Anna puzzled it over, frowning at him. "What's wrong with that?"

"Too stupid to fly," murmured his father with a little smile.

Wonderful concept and a really interesting look at what happens when you try to focus on the future instead of on the present but large sections were very heavy and slow going.

Instantly a favourite. Very poetic language with a wide scope and instinctively familiar characters. Looking forward to reading Hazzard's others.

Virginia Woolf
“Was not writing poetry a secret transaction, a voice answering a voice?”
Virginia Woolf, Orlando

Czesław Miłosz
“The purpose of poetry is to remind us
how difficult it is to remain just one person,
for our house is open, there are no keys in the doors,
and invisible guests come in and out at will.”
Czesław Miłosz

“Perhaps, in the extravagance of youth, we give away our devotions easily and all but arbitrarily, on the mistaken assumption that we’ll always have more to give.”

Paul Vanderloos Pleased to meet you VC. My prime area of interest in books are fantasy and historical fiction, with a smattering of biography, and the odd mystery, murder and mayhem thrown in. Have a good day. :)


Bradley Thank you for adding me as a friend. =)
