Really, what can be said about this book that has not already been said? I loved this book and couldn't stop reading it... which is significant considering the fact that I have seen both season 1 and season 2 of the HBO series. This means that while...more

If I hadn't had a drive from Atlanta to Chicago and then Chicago and back I doubt I would have finished this one. It was just too much. Too much whining. Too much emotional turmoil. Blah blah blah I get it. You are torn. Either do something about it...more

Sue Monk Kidd
“The world will give you that once in awhile, a brief timeout; the boxing bell rings and you go to your corner, where somebody dabs mercy on your beat-up life.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees:

Charlotte Brontë
“A great deal; you are good to those who are good to you. It is all I ever desire to be. If people were always kind and obedient to those who are cruel and unjust, the wicked people would have it all their own way; they would never feel afraid, and so they would never alter, but would grow worse and worse. When we are struck at without a reason, we should strike back again very hard; I am sure we should - so hard as to teach the person who struck us never to do it again.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Virginia Woolf
“What is the meaning of life? That was all- a simple question; one that tended to close in on one with years, the great revelation had never come. The great revelation perhaps never did come. Instead, there were little daily miracles, illuminations, matches struck unexpectedly in the dark; here was one.”
Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse

Audre Lorde
“My silences had not protected me. Your silence will not protect you. But for every real word spoken, for every attempt I had ever made to speak those truths for which I am still seeking, I had made contact with other women while we examined the words to fit a world in which we all believed, bridging our differences.”
Audre Lorde, The Cancer Journals

Wangari Maathai
“As I swept the last bit of dust, I made a covenant with myself: I will accept. Whatever will be, will be. I have a life to lead. I recalled words a friend had told me, the philosophy of her faith. "Life is a journey and a struggle," she had said. "We cannot control it, but we can make the best of any situation." I was indeed in quite a situation. It was up to me to make the best of it.”
Wangari Maathai
