Jenny Jenny said: " I cannot get through this book. I have picked up at least 6 different times during the last 10 years and I never make it further than 40 or 50 pages. I want to read this book. The premise is interesting and I've read so many wonderful reviews. I supp ...more "

Meh. Ansari definitely has a unique voice that comes across loud and clear in this small volume, but the book still manages to be dry. Also, the book only really applies to monogamous, straight "romances", thus rendering it irrelevant for a large seg ...more

“When I run the world, librarians will be exempt from tragedy. Even their smaller sorrows will last only for as long as you can take out a book.”
Karen Joy Fowler, We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves

Gyula Krúdy
“For the farsighted, the folks in the know, life is a deer park, where gentle breezes and fragrant grape leaves keep you company, complete with afternoon foot-soakings, peaceful snoozes, fine hounds and desirable wenches, the hell with all care; a long life, a nice pipe from time to time, mellow dinners: that's the way to spend life, life that digs your grave even now, steadfastly, like the ever-burrowing mole. To want nothing, and ask only for peace and quiet. Hope for nothing besides fair weather on the morrow. Trust no one, believe no one, think no extraordinary thoughts, just live, live, and love; fall asleep, and wake up healthy... Wear comfy slippers and pass the night in a feather bed. Live out a happy and long old age, the best part of life. To get an honest night's sleep, and then a snooze after lunch, let out a few whoops, fight and make up.”
Gyula Krúdy

Terry Pratchett
“People think that stories are shaped by people. In fact, it's the other way around.”
Terry Pratchett, Witches Abroad

Terry Pratchett
“The trouble with witches is that they’ll never run away from things they really hate.

Terry Pratchett, Witches Abroad

“I learned the long way about love, tried every house on the block before I got it right. Now, finally, I love alone.”
