Some books do that to you. They beckon you to go out o" Read more of this review »

“Aim at Heaven and you will get Earth 'thrown in': aim at Earth and you will get neither.”
C.S. Lewis, The Joyful Christian

“I'd rather take coffee than compliments just now.”
Louisa May Alcott, Little Women

“I know some very great writers, writers you love who write beautifully and have made a great deal of money, and not one of them sits down routinely feeling wildly enthusiastic and confident. Not one of them writes elegant first drafts. All right, one of them does, but we do not like her very much. We do not think that she has a rich inner life or that God likes her or can even stand her. (Although when I mentioned this to my priest friend Tom, he said that you can safely assume you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.)”
Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life
