Alone by Robert J. Crane
Rate this book
Clear rating
ALONE (The Girl in the Box #1) by Robert J Crane is the story of a 17-year-old, female meta-human. I believe this is a series for Teens & YA. I’ve become a fan of many even though it has been a few decades since I was part of this group.

THE UNDERGROUND CITY is a short story by Jules Verne that I had never heard of until I stumbled upon it quite by accident in the library. What else can I say? It’s Jules Verne! I enjoyed it even though it was short and fell short of his typical works...more

Francis Drake
“Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, 

when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little, 

when we arrive safely because we sailed too close to the shore. 

Disturb us, Lord, when with the abundance of things we possess,
we have lost our thirst for the waters of life, 
having fallen in love with life, we have ceased to dream of eternity, 
and in our efforts to build a new earth, 

we have allowed our vision of the new heaven to dim. 

Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly, to venture on wider seas, 
where storms will show your mastery, 
where losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. 
We ask you to push back the horizon of our hopes, 
and to push us into the future in strength, courage, hope, and love. 
This we ask in the name of our Captain, who is Jesus Christ. ”
Francis Drake

Jules Renard
“I am never bored; to be bored is an insult to one's self.”
Jules Renard

“In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.”
