“The eye is always half-full.”
Arthur Slade, Jolted: Newton Starker's Rules for Survival

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

Lincoln Hi Slade!

I don't get to Goodreads nearly as often as I'd like because I'm writing my 4th book. So, I wanted to make sure and stop by and let you know that I am thrilled to be your friend here! Are you on twitter? My twitter name is: linc0lnpark

Have a fantastic day!
