I only kept reading this book because I trust the author. Even so, I found the first two thirds of the book to be just ok. I really liked the end. So, I'm averaging it out and giving this book three stars.

E.M. Forster
“She stopped and leant her elbows against the parapet of the embankment. He did likewise. There is at times a magic in identity of position; it is one of the things that have suggested to us eternal comradeship.”
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

Amy Sedaris
“I think it's good for a person to spend time alone. It gives them an opportunity to discover who they are and to figure out why they are always alone.”
Amy Sedaris, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence

E.M. Forster
“We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”
E.M. Forster

E.M. Forster
“Do we find happiness so often that we should turn it off the box when it happens to sit there?”
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

E.M. Forster
“Was Mrs. Wilcox one of the unsatisfactory people- there are many of them- who dangle intimacy and then withdraw it? They evoke our interests and affections, and keep the life of the spirit dawdling around them. Then they withdraw. When physical passion is involved, there is a definite name for such behaviour- flirting- and if carried far enough, it is punishable by law. But no law- not public opinion, even- punishes those who coquette with friendship, though the dull ache that they inflict, the sense of misdirected effort and exhaustion, may be as intolerable. Was she one of these?”
E.M. Forster, Howards End
