Wendy and 2 other people liked Jessica's review of Yes Please:
Yes Please by Amy Poehler
"This probably would've been 3 stars if I'd read this in paper form but I listened to the audiobook, which is narrated by Amy Poehler herself, and she is just too funny. "

Anaïs Nin
“We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.”
Anaïs Nin

Ogden Nash
“Tonight’s December thirty-first,
Something is about to burst.
The clock is crouching, dark and small,
Like a time bomb in the hall.
Hark, it's midnight, children dear.
Duck! Here comes another year!”
Ogden Nash, Collected verse from 1929 on

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Jennifer Egan
“I'm always happy," Sasha said. "Sometimes I just forget.”
Jennifer Egan, A Visit from the Goon Squad

Chris Cleave
“A scar does not form on the dying. A scar means, I survived.”
