"Torn on this one. Parts of it I really enjoyed! I listen to the audio and liked how the narrator did the different accents. Yay for worker strikes and better working conditions!

But did it have to be so long? After the strike ended, I w..." Read more of this review »

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read.”
James Baldwin

Salman Rushdie
“I want to suggest to you that citizens of free societies, democracies, do not preserve their freedom by pussyfooting around their fellow-citizen's opinions, even their most cherished beliefs. In free societies, you must have the free play of ideas. There must be argument, and it must be impassioned and untrammeled. A free society is not calm and eventless place - that is the kind of static, dead society dictators try to create. Free societies are dynamic, noisy, turbulent, and full of radical disagreements. Skepticism and freedom are indissolubly linked; and it is the skepticism of journalists, their show-me, prove-it unwillingness to be impressed, that is perhaps their most important contribution to the freedom of the free world. It is the disrespect of journalists-for power, for orthodoxies, for party lines, for ideologies, for vanity, for arrogance, for folly, for pretension, for corruption, for stupidity, maybe even for editors-that I would like to celebrate...and that I urge you all, in freedom's name, to preserve.”
Salman Rushdie, Step Across This Line: Collected Nonfiction 1992-2002

Amy Witting
“This world. This human race. It isn't divided into sexes. Everybody thinks it's divided into sexes but it isn't. It's the givers and the takers, the diners and the dinners”
Amy Witting, A Change In The Lighting

Anne Sexton
“As it has been said:
Love and a cough
cannot be concealed.
Even a small cough.
Even a small love.”
Anne Sexton

Ernest Hemingway
“The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.”
Ernest Hemingway
