Sheila and 28 other people liked Teresa's review of A Room of One's Own:
A Room of One's Own by Virginia Woolf
"Before I read this book, two tidbits always came to mind when I thought of it: that a woman needed 500 pounds a year to be able to write in that room of her own and that Woolf had imagined a life for Shakespeare’s fictional, just-as-talented siste..." Read more of this review »
Closer Than Brothers by Alfred W. McCoy
" That Trillanes bit is insightful. Thanks for sharing that info. "
Closer Than Brothers by Alfred W. McCoy
"In the 1980s, the Philippines (specifically Metropolitan Manila) was rocked by 9 coup attempts by a faction in the military. I remember the bloodiest of these, the one in December of 1989, when I was seven years old. One of my earliest recollectio..." Read more of this review »

Francis Bacon
“It is a sad fate for a man to die too well known to everybody else, and still unknown to himself.”
Francis Bacon

William Saroyan
“The most solid advice for a writer is this, I think: Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”
William Saroyan

William Golding
“My yesterdays walk with me. They keep step, they are gray faces that peer over my shoulder.”
William Golding

George Carlin
“We're so self-important. So arrogant. Everybody's going to save something now. Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save the snails. And the supreme arrogance? Save the planet! Are these people kidding? Save the planet? We don't even know how to take care of ourselves; we haven't learned how to care for one another. We're gonna save the fuckin' planet? . . . And, by the way, there's nothing wrong with the planet in the first place. The planet is fine. The people are fucked! Compared with the people, the planet is doin' great. It's been here over four billion years . . . The planet isn't goin' anywhere, folks. We are! We're goin' away. Pack your shit, we're goin' away. And we won't leave much of a trace. Thank God for that. Nothing left. Maybe a little Styrofoam. The planet will be here, and we'll be gone. Another failed mutation; another closed-end biological mistake.”
George Carlin
