I really loved this book. It is heartbreaking, intelligent, understated and fascinating. I can understand why some people don't like it, but to me that is because they don't quite understand it or haven't allowed themselves to really fall into it. At...more

Jane Austen
“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
Jane Austen

John Lennon
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
John Lennon

“He understood that in walking to atone for the mistakes he had made, it was also his journey to accept the strangeness of others.”
Rachel Joyce, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry
