It takes courage as a writer to tap into eras of darkness, hatred, and tyranny. It takes brilliance to bookend the storyline with a modern perspective and curiosity. That is what Paulette Mahurin achieves wi

An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley
“We don't live alone. We are members of one body. We are responsible for each other. And I tell you that the time will soon come when if men will not learn that lesson, then they will be taught it in fire and blood and anguish. Good night.”

I am not sure I had seen a book before that taught ABCs and 123s for boys. I am sure there are parents who prefer information in gender-defined content. This book is fabulous for both boys and girls, even if all the characters are meant to be masculi ...more

“Enemies always attend each other's funerals. I guess it is a way of knowing they won...”
M.C.V. Egan, Defined by Others

Topics Mentioning This Author

“You risked your life, but what else have you ever risked? Have you risked disapproval? Have you ever risked economic security? Have you ever risked a belief? I see nothing particularly courageous about risking one's life. So you lose it, you go to your hero's heaven and everything is milk and honey 'til the end of time. Right? You get your reward and suffer no earthly consequences. That's not courage. Real courage is risking something that might force you to rethink your thoughts and suffer change and stretch consciousness. Real courage is risking one's clichés.”
Tom Robbins, Another Roadside Attraction

“Amnesia is not knowing who one is and wanting desperately to find out. Euphoria is not knowing who one is and not caring. Ecstasy is knowing exactly who one is - and still not caring.”
Tom Robbins, Another Roadside Attraction

“I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.”
Olivia Wilde

“Here's the news: I am going to sue the Brown & Williamson Tobacco Company, manufacturers of Pall Mall cigarettes, for a billion bucks! Starting when I was only twelve years old, I have never chain-smoked anything but unfiltered Pall Malls. And for many years now, right on the package, Brown & Williamson have promised to kill me.
But I am eighty-two. Thanks a lot, you dirty rats. The last thing I ever wanted was to be alive when the three most powerful people on the whole planet would be named Bush, Dick and Colon.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country
