Kathy Ridge read and liked Hinges by Melissa Stein
"You opened this door. Forced it back
on its hinges, drove in the thin wedge, saying

“I may need to enter at a moment’s notice.”
But don’t you know that metal has memory, alive

the way rising dough resists a probing finger,
or trodden grass springs up..." Read more of this chapter »

Not as good as Let the Great World Spin but characteristically similar. Very educational to me about Irish history including first Transatlantic flight and Frederick Douglas's trip there. Fascinating history told through fictional characters. I like...more

well written, interesting - draws you in and keeps you attention. Disturbing, dark story or I would have enjoyed it more and rated it higher. This is one messed up dude.

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Henri J.M. Nouwen
“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen, Out of Solitude: Three Meditations on the Christian Life

Theodore Roosevelt
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Theodore Roosevelt

George Eliot
“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
George Eliot

Henry David Thoreau
“I learned this, at least, by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods
