I put off reading this for the stupid reason that it seemed like everyone was reading this a few years ago. But after reading her collection of letters and really liking her writing and honesty, I decided to finally give it a try. I'm so glad I did.

Maverynthia is on page 25 of 428 of Into the Dim: "You are exotic, like some gypsy girl, with that dark hair and great gray eyes.."

John Heilemann
“Most puzzling was his timidity. Giuliani was supposed to be a tough guy, but in the face of attacks by his opponents, his performance had been as limp as an overcooked Chinatown noodle.”
John Heilemann, Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime

Rainbow Rowell
“Lincoln had pictured himself building firewalls and protecting the newspaper from dangerous hackers—”
Rainbow Rowell, Attachments

Sheryl Sandberg
“When looking for a life partner, my advice to women is date all of them: the bad boys, the cool boys, the commitment-phobic boys, the crazy boys. But do not marry them. The things that make the bad boys sexy do not make them good husbands. When it comes time to settle down, find someone who wants an equal partner. Someone who thinks women should be smart, opinionated and ambitious. Someone who values fairness and expects or, even better, wants to do his share in the home. These men exist and, trust me, over time, nothing is sexier.”
Sheryl Sandberg, Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead

Greg McKeown
“A true Essentialist, Peter Drucker believed that “people are effective because they say no.”
Greg McKeown, Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

Edan Lepucki
“I imagined swinging from the punching bag of his uvula.”
