I had breast cancer in 1977.  I was lucky; I was a writer who h

State of Terror by Hillary Rodham Clinton
Rate this book
Clear rating
Given that Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State in deed, we have to wonder whether this book was written, in this form, with the expert companionship of Louise Penny, because we have to know what in fact is revealed.

Quotes by Deena Metzger  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Beauty appears when something is completely and absolutely and openly itself.”
Deena Metzger

“Without compassion, we will never know anyone or anything, not even our own story. Too much judgment, too many ideas and attitudes will stand in the way of the fundamental principle that we are similar to, connected with, and part of everything else.”
Deena Metzger

“Write against patterns. Go against the devils. Write what you never write. Lie. Validate what you don’t validate. Indulge what you don’t like. Wallow in it. Write the opposite of what you always write, think, speak. Do everything against the grain!”
Deena Metzger
