When I saw this book on the shelf of the book store I had to get it. The cover is beautiful and the title reminds me of Harry Potter. I'm also a huge Fantasy novel fan, and I love reading translated books because I love learning about other cultures, ...more

Hawkeye, Volume 5: All-New Hawkeye was such a hit, I could not wait to read Volume 6! However, I was in for a sore disappointment. It is not that Hawkeyes is bad. No, far from it. It just does not live up to the quality and excitement of the previous ...more

“Angry people want you to see how powerful they are... loving people want you to see how powerful You are.”
Chief Red Eagle

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Still, I wonder if we shall ever be put into songs or tales. We're in one, of course, but I mean: put into words, you know, told by the fireside, or read out of a great big book with red and black letters, years and years afterwards. And people will say: "Let's hear about Frodo and the Ring!" And they will say: "Yes, that's one of my favourite stories. Frodo was very brave, wasn't he, dad?" "Yes, my boy, the famousest of the hobbits, and that's saying a lot."
'It's saying a lot too much,' said Frodo, and he laughed, a long clear laugh from his heart. Such a sound had not been heard in those places since Sauron came to Middle-earth. To Sam suddenly it seemed as if all the stones were listening and the tall rocks leaning over them. But Frodo did not heed them; he laughed again. 'Why, Sam,' he said, 'to hear you somehow makes me as merry as if the story was already written. But you've left out one of the chief characters: Samwise the stouthearted. "I want to hear more about Sam, dad. Why didn't they put in more of his talk, dad? That's what I like, it makes me laugh. And Frodo wouldn't have got far without Sam, would he, dad?"'
'Now, Mr. Frodo,' said Sam, 'you shouldn't make fun. I was serious.'
'So was I,' said Frodo, 'and so I am.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers

Victor Hugo
“Teach the ignorant as much as you can; society is culpable in not providing a free education for all and it must answer for the night which it produces. If the soul is left in darkness sins will be committed. The guilty one is not he who commits the sin, but he who causes the darkness.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Carl Phillips
“Technically, the weight of pain is the weight of shadow.”
Carl Phillips, The Rest of Love

Søren Kierkegaard
“The most common form of despair is not being who you are.”
Søren Kierkegaard
