This book really helped me deal with some family stuff that weighed heavily on me. There were a few parts that didn't mesh with my beliefs, but I understood where the author was coming from and could absorb her point.

Helen Keller
“What I'm looking for is not out there, it is in me.”
Helen Keller

Cormac McCarthy
“The names of the cerros and the sierras and the deserts exist only on maps. We name them that we do not lose our way. Yet it was because the way was lost to us already that we have made those names. The world cannot be lost. We are the ones. And it is because these names and these coordinates are our own naming that they cannot save us. They cannot find for us the way again.”
Cormac McCarthy, The Crossing

Don DeLillo
“No sense of the irony of human experience, that we are the highest form of life on earth, and yet ineffably sad because we know what no other animal knows, that we must die.”
Don DeLillo, White Noise

Helen Keller
“Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost.”
Helen Keller

Cormac McCarthy
“No one can tell you what your life is goin to be, can they?

Cormac McCarthy, The Crossing
