Caroline liked a quote
One of the purest souls ever to live on this fallen planet was Nicholas Herman, known as Brother Lawrence. He wrote very little, but what he wrote has seemed to several generations of Christians to be so rare and so beautiful as to deserve a place near the top among the world's great books of devotion. The writings of Brother Lawrence are the ultimate in simplicity; ideas woven like costly threads to make a pattern of great beauty. A.W. Tozer

I really wanted to like this book. And it isn't that the story was bad. It really wasn't. But this is an epistolary novel - and the letters are written by a 15-year-old boy named Charlie who clearly has some issues socializing - like maybe he has Asp...more

Unremembered by Jessica Brody
" Posted to Almost Grown-up:

Okay, so, Unremembered by Jessica Brody didn’t exactly change my life.

I liked it well enough. The book lent itself well to quick reading– I was astonished by how quickly I hit those 50 page increments. I even think that I... " Read more of this review »

" I'm torn about how I feel about this book. I think I would have liked it more if the author provided more background information on Diotech, Sera/Violet, and Zen. It's obvious from the beginning that Zen is an important person to Sera, but we lear... " Read more of this review »

Meg Cabot
“Write the kind of story you would like to read. People will give you all sorts of advice about writing, but if you are not writing something you like, no one else will like it either.”
Meg Cabot

Anton Chekhov
“Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”
Anton Chekhov

George Bernard Shaw
“Make it a rule never to give a child a book you would not read yourself.”
George Bernard Shaw

Anne Frank
“It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Stephen King
“The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them -- words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a tellar but for want of an understanding ear.”
Stephen King, Different Seasons
