“All great adventures have moments that are really crap.”
Ellen Potter, The Kneebone Boy

“Look, when do the really interesting things happen? Not when you've brushed your teeth and put on your pyjamas and are cozy in bed. They happen when you are cold and uncomfortable and hungry and don't have a roof over your head for the night.”
Ellen Potter, The Kneebone Boy

“...when you start to feel like you are better than someone else, you should probably stick your head in a toilet because at that moment your thoughts are crap.”
Ellen Potter

If, however, I have not included a book you want to vote for just send me a message or write a comment. I will add it to the list.)
