If Life Gives You Lemons

Somebody once told me that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade. I responded that while that may be true, if life gives you lemonade then you don't need the lemons to begin with.

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

“There is a very thin line between fighting for what you believe to be right and becoming that which you are fighting against.”
Mark Sheldon

“The dangerous paradox of living in this age of instant communication is that the act of communication has become something of a virtue. Apparently, because people have the ability to communicate instantly, they have lost the ability to communicate at all.”
Mark Sheldon

“It would not be completely unreasonable to suggest that if J.K. Rowling, Dan Brown, and Dean Koontz were to get together in a time machine and travel back to early 1982 so that they could have a drunken, care-free, passionate orgy with Douglas Adams, that I might have been the love child of such a coming together.”
Mark Sheldon

It's my pleasure, and although I haven't previously read the earlier books in your series, the description of Scorpio Rising sounded intriguing. It seems I've a habit of jumping into the middle of series as I've done so recently too! Look forward to (hopefully) reading.

Jessica.
