At first, I was bored stiff. Upon closer reflection, I realize that it is difficult to make the reader understand the complex inter-reactions of being shy. I was shy when younger, so I know how deeply they feel things. We must also read with the und...more
Opting In by Amy Richards
" Really enjoyed this, though I would say that it's more about feminism than about motherhood/parenting. I particularly appreciated the discussions of our relationships with our mothers, the decision/value of returning to work, and the challenges fo... " Read more of this review »

I have to admit that I couldn't have read this book in the actual form of a book. Listening to CD's while driving made it palatable. I know these classics are important to read...to see into a world gone by, but a biography of Edith Wharton's life is...more

I enjoyed this book immensely. Can't tell you how many times I cried. My great grand parents, grand parents and uncle worked their entire lives in a cotton mill. It was insightful to see how they lived, their stories, but most of all how they loved o...more

“It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Elie Wiesel
“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”
Elie Wiesel

H. Jackson Brown Jr.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
H. Jackson Brown Jr., P.S. I Love You

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”
