Forcing the Spring by Jo Becker
"I loved this book. It had a great balance of legal depth and personal drama. As a Californian , I was completely unaware of the DOMA struggle going on in New York while the whole Prop 8 battle went on here. I also was delighted to learn about the..." Read more of this review »

Nicholas Sparks
“You're going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it's always their actions you should judge them by. It's actions, not words, that matter.”
Nicholas Sparks, The Rescue

Jodi Picoult
“You don't love someone because they're perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they're not.”
Jodi Picoult, My Sister's Keeper

Bill Bryson
“Black bears rarely attack. But here's the thing. Sometimes they do. All bears are agile, cunning and immensely strong, and they are always hungry. If they want to kill you and eat you, they can, and pretty much whenever they want. That doesn't happen often, but - and here is the absolutely salient point - once would be enough.”
Bill Bryson, A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

Desiderius Erasmus
“When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.”
Desiderius Erasmus

Elizabeth Gilbert
“But is it such a bad thing to live like this for just a little while? Just for a few months of one's life, is it so awful to travel through time with no greater ambition than to find the next lovely meal? Or to learn how to speak a language for no higher purpose than that it pleases your ear to hear it? Or to nap in a garden, in a patch of sunlight, in the middle of the day, right next to your favourite fountain? And then to do it again the next day?”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
