I enjoyed the first two parts of this book and then the next two parts dragged. I must be more interested in apples and tulips than I am in marijuana and potatoes.

Ogden Nash
“Tonight’s December thirty-first,
Something is about to burst.
The clock is crouching, dark and small,
Like a time bomb in the hall.
Hark, it's midnight, children dear.
Duck! Here comes another year!”
Ogden Nash, Collected verse from 1929 on

“There is nothing better than a friend, unless it is a friend with chocolate.”
Linda Grayson

Abraham Verghese
“The key to your happiness is to own your slippers, own who you are, own how you look, own your family, own the talents you have, and own the ones you don't. If you keep saying your slippers aren't yours, then you'll die searching, you'll die bitter, always feeling you were promised more. Not only our actions, but also our omissions, become our destiny.”
Abraham Verghese, Cutting for Stone

George Eliot
“It is a narrow mind which cannot look at a subject from various points of view.”
George Eliot, Middlemarch

Megan Whalen Turner
“I'll be your minister--"
"Of the exchequer? You'd rob me blind."
"I would never steal from you," he'd said hotly.
"Oh? Where is my tourmaline necklace? Where are my missing earrings?"
"That necklace was hideous. It was the only way to keep you from wearing it."
"My earrings?"
"What earrings?”
Megan Whalen Turner, The Queen of Attolia
