Entertaining but often confusing. I tend to agree with many of the negative commenters regarding much of her advice about dating and sexual harassment. I don't think anyone should tolerate some creep bothering them. On the other hand, you can't go th ...more

John Steinbeck
“In the souls of the people the grapes of wrath are filling and growing heavy, growing heavy for the vintage.”
John Steinbeck

Kristin Hannah
“If I have learned anything in this long life of mine, it is this: In love we find out who we want to be ; in war we find out who we are.”
Kristin Hannah

Kent Nerburn
“We humans are destined to live with our feet on the earth and our heads in the heavens, and we can never be at peace because we are pulled both ways.”
Kent Nerburn

Charlotte Brontë
“But let me not hate and despise myself too much for these feelings; I know them to be wrong – that is a great step gained; I shall strive to overcome them. To-morrow, I trust, I shall get the better of them partially; and in a few weeks, perhaps, they will be quite subdued.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Robert Fulghum
“We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness — and call it love — true love.”
Robert Fulghum, True Love
