Jan and 3 other people liked Anysha's review of Jako zabít ptáčka:
Jako zabít ptáčka by Harper Lee
"Kdyby se o téhle knize tolik nemluvilo a nevychvalovala se do nebes, nejspíš bych dala hvězd 5. Vlastně jí nemám co vytknout, ale zároveň jsem čekala něco trochu víc, hlavně z příběhového hlediska, možná více uvěřitelných zvratů (viz. Bubu na konc..." Read more of this review »

John Wyndham
“It’s not my fault if I’m not any good at things like that.” “I’ll differ there,” Coker told her. “It’s not only your fault—it’s a self-created fault. Moreover, it’s an affectation to consider yourself too spiritual to understand anything mechanical. It is a petty and a very silly form of vanity. Everyone starts by knowing nothing about anything, but God gives him—and even her—brains to find out with. Failure to use them is not a virtue to be praised;”
John Wyndham, The Day of the Triffids

Francis Bacon
“Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider. Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention.”
Francis Bacon, The Essays

Haruki Murakami
“What happens when people open their hearts?"
"They get better.”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

Rudyard Kipling
“Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind.”
Rudyard Kipling

Francis Bacon
“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand and melting like a snowflake.”
Francis Bacon, The Essays
