Erica's Recent Updates

Erica liked a quote
Yes Please by Amy Poehler
“Well, the first thing we do is take our brain out and put it in a drawer. Stick it somewhere and let it tantrum until it wears itself out. You may still hear the brain and all the shitty things it is saying to you, but it will be muffled, and just the fact that it is not in your head anymore will make things seem clearer. And then you just do it.”
Amy Poehler

Yes Please by Amy Poehler
“You do it because the doing of it is the thing. The doing is the thing. The talking and worrying and thinking is not the thing.”

I liked learning about the humility after WWII and the life of Francis Perkins, but it lost my attention by chapter four.

The further we got into this book, the more it felt like it was written for couples truly struggling in their partnership. It was okay, just not what we were expecting.

Harper Lee
“...every neight he read aloud to them until his voice cracked.
Atticus killed several birds with one stone when he read to his children, and would pobably have caused a child psychologist considerable dismay: he read to Jem and Jean Louise whatever he happened to be reading, and the children grew up possessed of an obsure eruidition.”
Harper Lee, Go Set a Watchman

Harper Lee
“But I don't get the connection."
Dr. Finch put his hands on the table. 'That's because you haven't looked,' he said. 'You've never opened your eyes.”
Harper Lee, Go Set a Watchman

Harper Lee
“She did not stand alone, but what stood behind her, the most potent moral force in her life, was the love of her father. She never questioned it, never thought about it, never even realized that before she made any decision of imprtance the reflext, 'What would Atticus do?' passed through her unconscious; she never realized what made her dig in her feet and stand firm whenever she did was her father; that whatever decent and of good report in her character was put there by her father; she did not know that she worshiped him.”
Harper Lee, Go Set a Watchman

Harper Lee
“She looked at Maycomb, and her throat tightened: Maycomb was looking back at her.
Go away, the old buildings said. There is no place for you here. You are not wanted. We have secrets.”
Harper Lee, Go Set a Watchman

Harper Lee
“If Dill were here he would leap over the fence to her, bring her head down to his, kiss her, and hold her hand, and together they would take their stand when there was trouble in the house. But Dill had long since gone from her.”
Harper Lee, Go Set a Watchman
