I didn't know a lot about this book before I began reading it and that's probably a good thing because I may not have picked it up at all, otherwise. This is an extremely well-written memoir that you THINK is about training a goshawk (a notoriously d ...more

John Irving
“Never confuse faith, or belief—of any kind—with something even remotely intellectual.”
John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it's very difficult to find anyone.'
I should think so — in these parts! We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

J.R.R. Tolkien
“There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West. Some courage and some wisdom, blended in measure. If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

John Irving
“If watching television doesn't hasten death, it surely manages to make death very inviting; for television so shamelessly sentimentalizes and romanticizes death that it makes the living feel they have missed something - just by staying alive.”
John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany

J.K. Rowling
“It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
