I have strongly mixed feelings about this book. With regards to the intellectual content alone, I enjoyed it, although I can't help feeling that some unhelpful binaries are being cast between the so-called 'North' and 'South', between the 'developed' ...more

Sue Monk Kidd
“Spinners take out the bad stuff, leave in the good. I’ve always thought how nice it would be to have spinners like this for human beings. Just toss them in and let the spinner do its work.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

Sue Monk Kidd
“It was the in-between time, before day leaves and night comes, a time I’ve never been partial to because of the sadness that lingers in the space between going and coming.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

Albert Camus
“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.

And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.”
Albert Camus

Robert James Waller
“It’s clear to me now that I have been moving toward you and you toward me for a long time. Though neither of us was aware of the other before we met, there was a kind of mindless certainty bumming blithely along beneath our ignorance that ensured we would come together. Like two solitary birds flying the great prairies by celestial reckoning, all of these years and lifetimes we have been moving toward one another.”
Robert James Waller, The Bridges of Madison County

W. Somerset Maugham
“... self-sacrifice is a passion so overwhelming that beside it even lust and hunger are trifling. It whirls its victim to destruction in the highest affirmation of his personality. The object doesn't matter; it may be worthwhile or it may be worthless. No wine is so intoxicating, no love so shattering, no vice so compelling. When he sacrifices himself man for a moment is greater than God, for how can God, infinite and omnipotent, sacrifice himself? At best he can only sacrifice his only begotten son.”
W. Somerset Maugham, The Razor's Edge
