The Day I Lost My Superpowers by Michaël Escoffier

I think I was expecting too much from this book. I just did not see any of the cleverness or humor that I was expecting. Maybe I’ll have to try it again on another day.
As Luck Would Have It by Robert D. San Souci

San Souci has rewritten an old “noodlehead tale” by the brothers Grimm, using bears as the main characters rather than humans. His illustrations make the story feel like an old one from my childhood. The dimwitted twins create disaster after disaster...more

Paul Acampora
“I'm not one of those people who think that cancer is some kind of jousting match. People live or die based on good medicine, good luck, and the grace of God. The people that die from it did not fail. The people who live will die another day.”
Paul Acampora, I Kill the Mockingbird

Paul Acampora
“Look both ways before you cross the street," she tells me.
I start to protest, but then it strikes me that if I am very lucky I will be able to offer annoying safety tips to my own children one day.”
Paul Acampora, I Kill the Mockingbird

Salman Rushdie
“Nobody has the right to not be offended. That right doesn't exist in any declaration I have ever read.

If you are offended it is your problem, and frankly lots of things offend lots of people.

I can walk into a bookshop and point out a number of books that I find very unattractive in what they say. But it doesn't occur to me to burn the bookshop down. If you don't like a book, read another book. If you start reading a book and you decide you don't like it, nobody is telling you to finish it.

To read a 600-page novel and then say that it has deeply offended you: well, you have done a lot of work to be offended.”
Salman Rushdie

Corrie ten Boom
“One day as Father and I were returning from our walk we found the Grote Markt cordoned off by a double ring of police and soldiers. A truck was parked in front of the fish mart; into the back were climbing men, women, and children, all wearing the yellow star. . . .

"Father! Those poor people!" I cried. . . .

"Those poor people," Father echoed. But to my surprise I saw that he was looking at the solders now forming into ranks to march away. "I pity the poor Germans, Corrie. They have touched the apple of God's eye.”
Corrie ten Boom, The Hiding Place
