" I suppose at one time in my life I might have had any number of stories, but now there is no other. This is the only story I will ever be able to tell.

But what a rich story it is!

The Secret History is the account of a poor, twenty-year old from Ca... " Read more of this review »
"Very nice review, Alison!! I'm so glad I'm not the only one in our group who loves her some Hemingway! "
Sarah Null and 4 other people liked Alison's review of A Farewell to Arms:
A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway
" "A wine shop was open and I went in for some coffee. It smelled of early morning, of swept dust, spoons in coffee-glasses and the wet circles left by wine glasses."

Mark Twain

Marianne Williamson
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles"
