I like books that have deep feelings and rich human relationships. Am currently re-reading A Scot’s Quair by Lewis Grassic Gibbon. You have to be willing to look up peculiar (but interesting!) Scots words online to understand some sentences. But the story is so rich; the humor and emotion so rich.(less)

“Then, whenever I feel the sun on my face, I will think of you, " I told him. "You will always be with me, Bill. Because of all I have felt for you, and all I have learned from you.”
Cornelia Maude Spelman, Missing: A Memoir

“When I feel angry, I want to say something mean, or yell, or hit. But feeling like I want to is not the same as doing it. Feeling can't hurt anyone or get me into trouble, but doing can." (Bunny from picture book)”
Cornelia Maude Spelman, When I Feel Angry

“It could not have been easy for Mother, an only child, to grow up without a father and with a mother who was remote. Photos of her as a child show her extremely dressed up --Cornie's beautiful little doll. But a daughter, unlike a doll, grows up, and might fall in love with and marry someone her mother does not like; she becomes an individual with her own ideas.”
