Age of Myth by Michael J. Sullivan
"I had thought the book started pretty weakly, but then there was a twist at the end that showed that the book just appeared to start weakly.

One weakness of the book is that no one has apparently discovered how useful a bow and arrow can be. The le..." Read more of this review »

Shel Silverstein
“Underneath my outside face
There's a face that none can see.
A little less smiley,
A little less sure,
But a whole lot more like me.”
Shel Silverstein, Every Thing on It

Robert A. Heinlein
“Dorcas, you already reek like a Marseilles cat house; don't wheedle Mike for more stinkum.”
Robert A. Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land

Charlotte Brontë
“Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilised by education: they grow there, firm as weeds among stones.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Louis de Bernières
“Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don't blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being "in love", which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.”
Louis de Bernières, Captain Corelli's Mandolin

George Orwell
“You're only a rebel from the waist downwards,' he told her.”
George Orwell, 1984
