How many times have you looked at a happily married couple and thought, "wow, how perfect are those two for one another?"

“The demons of the Devil don't use your weak weaknesses against you, they use your strong ones. If you're rational and logical, they argue their case rationally and logically. If you're loyal and faithful, they turn those against you. If you're passionate and emotional, they make you passionate and emotional about your worse fears. Your weak weaknesses are no use to them.... They find the strongest weaknesses you didn't know were yours and use those against you.”
Aidan Chambers, This is All: The Pillow Book of Cordelia Kenn

“If a boy, if a man, asks you if you're all right and you say yes, he'll always believe you and get on with what he wants to do. It's just the way they're made.”

“We resent being faced with facts we'd prefer to ignore as much as being wrongly accused of doing something we haven't.”
Aidan Chambers, This is All: The Pillow Book of Cordelia Kenn

Aidan Chambers
“Yet, isn't it strange, isn't it weird, how we can KNOW that someone is not behaving in the way we imagine, and at the same time we can be totally convinced that he is! How clever the human mind is, that it can accept two contradictory things as 'facts.' Yes, I know that in this case one 'fact' was untrue. But the human mind can KNOW something is untrue and still accept it as a 'fact,' and act on it as if it were true.”

Jennifer Hallock Jackie, I recommend you check out Better At Weddings Than You for your blog. The heroine is totally competent, works hard at what she does, and she is the best at it. Best of all, she does not pretend to be less than any of these things, and the hero wants to be her understudy! Also, all Filipino characters set in Manila.


Talltree Thanks for the FR, I'm honored!! Truly respect and love the thoughts on your blog<3!!!


willaful You respect my taste in books? You can't have been paying attention... ;-)

Stephanie Hi Jackie! I just met Maria Modugno yesterday (she is--get ready--one of my old student's mom's sister-in-law's sister) and she told me you both worked together at Little Brown, back when they were in Boston. I thought that was a funny coincidence :)
