Definitely felt like a book written for people in the book industry. I laughed out loud several times, especially when I envisioned a cop drawing his gun on another cop during a heated discussion of The Sand and the Fog.

“Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.”
C.G. Jung
Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
"one of the most hilarious scenes I have ever read is the description, early in the book, of a school fundraiser. Anyone fed up with tech bores or overbearing parents will appreciate this one."

William Shakespeare
“My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
The more I have, for both are infinite.”
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Henry James
“Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind.”
Henry James

Mark Twain
“A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”
Mark Twain

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

Victor Borge
“Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.”
Victor Borge
