The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah
"This, my first book to be read in 2016, was at once, poignant, heart-wrenchingly sad, yet a beautifully-written story of love, loss, courage, heroism and forgiveness. If you read no other book this year...make it this one!"

Ernest Hemingway
“If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

George R.R. Martin
“Bran thought about it. 'Can a man still be brave if he's afraid?'
'That is the only time a man can be brave,' his father told him.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

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

Robert Louis Stevenson
“Wine is bottled poetry.”
Robert Louis Stevenson

John Irving
“When someone you love dies, and you're not expecting it, you don't lose her all at once; you lose her in pieces over a long time—the way the mail stops coming, and her scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in her closet and drawers. Gradually, you accumulate the parts of her that are gone. Just when the day comes—when there's a particular missing part that overwhelms you with the feeling that she's gone, forever—there comes another day, and another specifically missing part.”
John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany
