What a brave soul Viktor Frankl is, to lay out his experiences in a concentration camp so nakedly. These experiences were absolutely unimaginable to me, yet in the face of great hardship and what seemed like a hopeless situation, he was still able to...more

Sophie is a cute and believable heroine. She tries her best and is fairly mature, her age does nonetheless show through sometimes. Although this is realistic, some of the statements in this book had me wincing. For example, "Whatever reasons [the Bla...more

Viktor E. Frankl
“Don't aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one's surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it”
Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

Anne Tyler
“I read so I can live more than one life in more than one place.”
Anne Tyler

Elie Wiesel
“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”
Elie Wiesel

Maya Angelou
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Maya Angelou
