All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill
" 4.5 stars

Cristin Terrill’s first novel is nothing if not ambitious. We have space-time manipulation, paradoxical concepts, assassination attempts, and the complications of multiple timelines. There is romance, a distant war, the ties of friendship... " Read more of this review »

Oscar Wilde

Alexander McCall Smith
“But that's exactly the problem, retorted Isabel. We're all stuck with the same tired and trusted ideas. If we refused to entertain the possibility of something radically different, then we'd never make any progress - ever. We'd still be thinking that the sun revolved round the earth.”
Alexander McCall Smith, Friends, Lovers, Chocolate

George Carlin
“I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, 'Where's the self-help section?' She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.”
George Carlin

Alexander McCall Smith
“It was time to take the pumpkin out of the pot and eat it. In the final analysis, that was what solved these big problems of life. You could think and think and get nowhere, but you still had to eat your pumpkin. That brought you down to earth. That gave you a reason for going on. Pumpkin.”
Alexander McCall Smith, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

Albert Einstein
“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”
