My (re-)reading spree is almost at an end! This is one of the titles I hadn't read before this year and I've got to say: If you have to do an origin retelling - if you really, really have to - this is the way to do it.

The reason why this one works f

A long review from me? After all this time? What is this sorcery?

Well, first of all, I ... don't think this book is as good as people often claim it to be.

Now, before you come after me with pitchforks let me just say this: It is still a great mini a

This was the very first Doctor Strange I ever read, back in 2011 (yes. I'm a newbie, but shh!) and I guess I liked it well enough. But now as I'm older and wiser and have read more of the character's canon I have to say, as retools go, this is one of ...more

Margaret Weis
“Words can never fully say what we want them to say, for they fumble, stammer, and break the best porcelain. The best one can hope for is to find along the way someone to share the path, content to walk in silence, for the heart communes best when it does not try to speak.”
Margaret Weis, Dragons of a Lost Star

Marianne Williamson
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles"

Arthur Schopenhauer
“... that when you're buying books, you're optimistically thinking you're buying the time to read them.
(Paraphrase of Schopenhauer)”
Arthur Schopenhauer

C.S. Lewis
“What draws people to be friends is that they see the same truth. They share it.”
C.S. Lewis

Joseph Joubert
“The worst thing about new books is that they keep us from reading the old ones.”
Joseph Joubert
