After hearing all the hubbub about this book, I guess I just expected a little more. There were ideas that I liked, but overall I felt it was a little scattered and it fell a little flat for me. I wanted to like Harold; I really did, but I don't thin ...more

Mediocre chick lit. Sort of forgettable.

Viktor E. Frankl
“For the first time in my life I saw the truth as it is set into song by so many poets, proclaimed as the final wisdom by so many thinkers. The truth - that Love is the ultimate and highest goal to which man can aspire. Then I grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart: The salvation of man is through love and in love.”
Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

C.S. Lewis
“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for a bird to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Viktor E. Frankl
“In some ways suffering ceases to be suffering at the moment it finds a meaning, such as the meaning of a sacrifice.”
Viktor E. Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning

Viktor E. Frankl
“We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.”
Viktor E. Frankl

Wallace Stegner
“There it was, there it is, the place where during the best time of our lives friendship had its home and happiness its headquarters.”
Wallace Stegner, Crossing to Safety
