I’ve always loved words – books, reading, writing, conversations. Words in all forms have always fascinated me. Words have been my entertainment, my way of exploring the world, my comfort and my way of connecting. I’ve read widely, eclectically and voraciously. I’ve written professionally and for my own enjoyment. I’ve enjoyed conversations about a range of issues and topics, loving the way peo...

Australian Women ...: Jess - Read 50, review 40 25 30 May 20, 2016 06:20PM  
Jasper Fforde
“If the real world were a book, it would never find a publisher. Overlong, detailed to the point of distraction-and ultimately, without a major resolution.”
Jasper Fforde, Something Rotten

“There will come a time when a person you most likely pushed out through your vagina and nursed from your
nipples, whose bottom you wiped, and whose snot and spit you cleaned up over several sleep-starved years will apprehend you with a mixture of boredom and irritation and say, ‘Get a life, Mum.’
This would be a good time to remember that a) violence never solved anything; b) teenagers don’t have a full brain yet – the prefrontal cortex that controls the ability to make important distinctions, like who controls the pocket money, only kicks in around the age of twenty-four; and c) you are, in fact, the adult.”
Joanne Fedler

“Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries.”
Anne Herbert

“Wisdom means to choose now what will make sense later. I am learning everyday to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be, to inspire me and not terrify me.”
Tracee Ellis Ross
