I loved visiting Iceland. In case you've never been there, Iceland has a lot to offer. The people are friendly, hard-working, willing to live in the moment, pragmatic, intelligent, well-read, and collaborative. What I liked best about "Burial Rites," ...more

Margaret Atwood
“If you knew what was going to happen, if you knew everything that was going to happen next—if you knew in advance the consequences of your own actions—you'd be doomed. You'd be ruined as God. You'd be a stone. You'd never eat or drink or laugh or get out of bed in the morning. You'd never love anyone, ever again. You'd never dare to.”
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin

Patrick Rothfuss
“It's like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

Naomi Novik
“And we must still try or we would be leaving our friends to fight without us. I think this is what you have meant by duty, all along; I do understand, at least this much of it.”
Naomi Novik, His Majesty's Dragon
