""the news is given verbally. We learn something. We are mortal. You might say you know this but you don't. The news falls neatly between one moment & another. You would not think there was a gap for such a thing. You would not think there was room. The threat has two aspects: a current fact & an obscure outcome-the manifestation of the fact.

Alicia and 5 other people liked Elyse's review of The Lovers:
The Lovers by Vendela Vida
"Interesting small book ---
Its really closer to a 3 star book ---(yet, I'm giving it 4 stars). I liked the 'intimacy' I felt while reading it. (I was swept right into this this story).

I could see a few things in the plot which are questionable ---..." Read more of this review »

Philip Roth
“We leave a stain, we leave a trail, we leave our imprint. Impurity, cruelty, abuse, error, excrement, semen - there’s no other way to be here. Nothing to do with disobedience. Nothing to do with grace or salvation or redemption. It’s in everyone. Indwelling. Inherent. Defining. The stain that is there before its mark.”
Philip Roth, The Human Stain

Anaïs Nin
“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken.”
Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

Jack Kerouac
“There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road: the Original Scroll

David Sedaris
“Sometimes the sins you haven't committed are all you have left to hold onto.”
David Sedaris, When You Are Engulfed in Flames

Stephen Chbosky
“It's much easier to not know things sometimes. Things change and friends leave. And life doesn't stop for anybody. I wanted to laugh. Or maybe get mad. Or maybe shrug at how strange everybody was, especially me. I think the idea is that every person has to live for his or her own life and than make the choice to share it with other people. You can't just sit their and put everybody's lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love. You just can't. You have to do things. I'm going to do what I want to do. I'm going to be who I really am. And I'm going to figure out what that is. And we could all sit around and wonder and feel bad about each other and blame a lot of people for what they did or didn't do or what they didn't know. I don't know. I guess there could always be someone to blame. It's just different. Maybe it's good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there. Because it's okay to feel things. I was really there. And that was enough to make me feel infinite. I feel infinite.”
Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower
