This is a book I intended to read, but initially (and accidentally) read the similarly named Mary Beth Keane book Fever (about Typhoid Mary) instead! However, I persevered, and did read this one not long after. Both are interesting studies of how pan ...more
Kiki is 19% done with Bring Up the Bodies: I am loving this wonderful book. My personal feeling is that Mantel is some kind of writing genius! Very evocative of time and place, and Cromwell is so thoughtful. And crafty!

E.M. Forster
“I am a Jane Austenite, and therefore slightly imbecile about Jane Austen. My fatuous expression, and airs of personal immunity—how ill they sit on the face, say, of a Stevensonian! But Jane Austen is so different. She is my favourite author! I read and reread, the mouth open and the mind closed. Shut up in measureless content, I greet her by the name of most kind hostess, while criticism slumbers.”
E.M. Forster

E.M. Forster
“A humanist has four leading characteristics - curiosity, a free mind, belief in good taste, and belief in the human race.”
E.M. Forster

E.M. Forster
“It isn't possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal.”
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

Frederick Buechner
“Here is the world. Beautiful and terrible things will happen. Don't be afraid.”
Frederick Buechner, Beyond Words: Daily Readings in the ABC's of Faith

Ann Patchett
“It makes you wonder. All the brilliant things we might have done with our lives if only we suspected we knew how.”
Ann Patchett, Bel Canto
