"Overall I enjoyed this book. It has lots of action and is a very fast read. So why is it a 3-star read? Well, there were a couple of things that annoyed me and I recently read Station Eleven, which I thought did a most excellent job with a strong..." Read more of this review »

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Albert Schweitzer
“Sometimes our light goes out, but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being.”
Albert Schweitzer

Mark Twain
“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
Mark Twain

Robert Frost
“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.”
Robert Frost

Niels Bohr
“An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.”
Niels Bohr
