The Boy Who Drew Monsters by Keith Donohue
"This is my first comment on Goodreads but I feel strongly about my score. This book was a big disappointment. The story wasn't very interesting and I found myself getting bored by it. I pushed on kept thinking that it had to get better but it neve..." Read more of this review »
The Boy Who Drew Monsters by Keith Donohue
"Not scary at all, sadly. And I didn't really care for the writing style, or the characters. The twist right at the end was awesome, though - I completely did not see that coming!"
The Boy Who Drew Monsters by Keith Donohue
"Ultimately forgettable, both in concept and in execution. There are things done well here, like the presentation of Jack Peter's Asperger's, but the haunts and frights are neither haunting nor frightening. Even the moments of real-life scary (figh..." Read more of this review »
The Boy Who Drew Monsters by Keith Donohue
"Well, that was a let down. This story had so much potential to be a mind blower. Alas, it did not blow my mind and instead made me roll my eyes.

I was expecting this book to have far more examples from rigid scientific and empirical studies, but it provided more of an anecdotal approach, which still proved to be very interesting. This is not to say that the author excluded more traditional ex ...more

Vincent van Gogh
“What am I in the eyes of most people — a nonentity, an eccentric, or an unpleasant person — somebody who has no position in society and will never have; in short, the lowest of the low. All right, then — even if that were absolutely true, then I should one day like to show by my work what such an eccentric, such a nobody, has in his heart. That is my ambition, based less on resentment than on love in spite of everything, based more on a feeling of serenity than on passion. Though I am often in the depths of misery, there is still calmness, pure harmony and music inside me. I see paintings or drawings in the poorest cottages, in the dirtiest corners. And my mind is driven towards these things with an irresistible momentum.”
Vincent van Gogh

“I always think that the best way to know God is to love many things.”
Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh
“At present I absolutely want to paint a starry sky. It often seems to me that night is still more richly coloured than the day; having hues of the most intense violets, blues and greens. If only you pay attention to it you will see that certain stars are lemon-yellow, others pink or a green, blue and forget-me-not brilliance. And without my expatiating on this theme it is obvious that putting little white dots on the blue-black is not enough to paint a starry sky.”
Vincent van Gogh

Ernest Becker
“The irony of man's condition is that the deepest need is to be free of the anxiety of death and annihilation; but it is life itself which awakens it, and so we must shrink from being fully alive.”
Ernest Becker, The Denial of Death

Vincent van Gogh
“...and then, I have nature and art and poetry, and if that is not enough, what is enough?”
Vincent van Gogh
