READING (AND WRITING) SHORTER NOVELS



      Like most of my friends as well as the entire planet,  the easiest way for not  volunteering or committing  to do something is to say, “really sorry, but my time is not my own.”  This usually calms feelings of disappointment,  and for me it’s always the truth.  

     As a society, we generally find it hard to say “no.” Yet we’re already  stretched thin by work,  personal responsibilities, put Read more of this blog post »

Majenta shared a highlight from
Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
He had started to suspect that his venerable father and his other teachers, that the wise Brahmans had already revealed to him the most and best of their wisdom, that they had already filled his expecting vessel with their richness, and the vessel was not full, the spirit was not content, the soul was not calm, the heart was not satisfied.

He was a source of joy for everybody, he was a delight for them all. But he, Siddhartha, was not a source of joy for himself, he found no delight in himself.

Quotes by Michael R. French  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Falling in love is more than infatuation. It is the need to feel whole, to feel safe, to be healed, to join together with someone, heart and soul.”
Michael R French, Why Men Fall Out of Love: What Every Woman Needs to Understand

“A lot of men not only fear emotional pain, they are afraid to be transparent and vulnerable. To let an outsider even glimpse their confusion or suffering is a taboo that starts in adolescence and becomes more entrenched with adulthood.”
Michael R French, Why Men Fall Out of Love: What Every Woman Needs to Understand

“When you're in love, there's nothing that can embarrass or surprise you.”
Michael R French, Once Upon a Lie

Topics Mentioning This Author

“Rationality and calm self-determination were one of the great illusions of the universe... in the end, we were all ruled by our passions.”
Michael R French, Once Upon a Lie

“When you're in love, there's nothing that can embarrass or surprise you.”
Michael R French, Once Upon a Lie

“Adversity does more than build character. It changes the way we see the world.”
Michael French

“In our ever-changing universe, lives collide, and, like runaway planets, we just keep going.”
Michael French, Once Upon a Lie

“If you spend long enough realizing a character in your book, congratulations, you've made a friend for life.”
Michael French
