“Time and trouble will tame an advanced young woman, but an advanced old woman is uncontrollable by any earthly force.”
Dorothy L. Sayers
V.C. Linde liked a quote
18800
“Beyond work and love, I would add two other ingredients that give meaning to life. First, to fulfill whatever talents we are born with. However blessed we are by fate with different abilities and strengths, we should try to develop them to the fullest, rather than allow them to atrophy and decay. We all know individuals who did not fulfill the promise they showed in childhood. Many of them became haunted by the image of what they might have become. Instead of blaming fate, I think we should accept ourselves as we are and try to fulfill whatever dreams are within our capability.

Second, we should try to leave the world a better place than when we entered it. As individuals, we can make a difference, whether it is to probe the secrets of Nature, to clean up the environment and work for peace and social justice, or to nurture the inquisitive, vibrant spirit of the young by being a mentor and a guide.”

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

Michael Cunningham
“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.”
Michael Cunningham, A Home at the End of the World

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. =)
