Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut
"God, what a terrible book of nonsense.

The two main characters are just overly weird and bizarre for the sake of being bizarre. And I mean really really bizarre. (I suspect many people say they like Vonnegut because he is so damn weird, but theres..." Read more of this review »

Lady Jane shared a quote
All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque
“These memories of former times do not awaken desire so much as sorrow-- a vast, inapprehensible melancholy. Once we had such desires-- but they return not. They are past, they belong to another world that is gone from us. They are completely lost to us. They arise no more; we are dead and they stand remote on the horizon, they are a mysterious reflection, an apparition that haunts us, that we fear and love without hope. They are unattainable and we know it.

And even if these scenes of our youth were given back to us, we would hardly know what to do. The tender, secret influence that passed from them into us could not rise again. We might remember and love them and be stirred by the sight of them. But it would be like gazing at the photograph of a dead comrade; those are his features, it is his face, and the days we spent together take on a mournful life in memory; but the man himself it is not.”
Erich Maria Remarque
The Fables of Aesop by Joseph Jacobs
" Great tales! A favorite in my personal collection. "
Lady Jane and 1 other person liked Kendall's review of The Fables of Aesop:
The Fables of Aesop by Joseph Jacobs
"Very interesting set of tales. I would love to read more by Aesop. I would use this book in my classroom to discuss history of Ancient Greece, and a lesson on folk tales."

I love how this novel confronts the topic of war so directly and with such radical simplicity. The author does a great job at deeply exploring the many aspects of war-- from life on the front, family life, love life, and the true enemy-- not the Engl ...more

Ayn Rand
“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”
Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

William W. Purkey
“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
