This is a good read with a lot of insight that I hadn't come across elsewhere. I like how as well as covering politics and policy, Connolly brings Brexit to life by talking to business owners. It's really interesting to hear about the practical impac ...more

I enjoyed this. Like the title suggests, it's about the election of a pope and features all the personalities, politics and power that you'd expect. What I liked most about it though was that Harris writes so well about the process of electing a pope ...more

Jane Austen
“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Jane Austen
“In such cases as this, it is, I believe, the established mode to express a sense of obligation for the sentiments avowed, however unequally they may be returned. It is natural that obligation should be felt, and if I could feel gratitude, I would now thank you. But I cannot–I have never desired your good opinion, and you have certainly bestowed it most unwillingly. I am sorry to have occasioned pain to anyone. It has been most unconsciously done, however, and I hope will be of short duration. The feelings which, you tell me, have long prevented the acknowledgment of your regard, can have little difficulty in overcoming it after this explanation.”

Mr. Darcy, who was leaning against the mantelpiece with his eyes fixed on her face, seemed to catch her words with no less resentment than surprise. His complexion became pale with anger, and the disturbance of his mind was visible in every feature. He was struggling for the appearance of composure, and would not open his lips till he believed himself to have attained it. The pause was to Elizabeth’s feelings dreadful. At length, with a voice of forced calmness, he said:

And this is all the reply which I am to have the honour of expecting! I might, perhaps, wish to be informed why, with so little endeavour at civility, I am thus rejected. But it is of small importance.”

I might as well inquire,” replied she, “why with so evident a desire of offending and insulting me, you chose to tell me that you liked me against your will, against your reason, and even against your character? Was not this some excuse for incivility, if I was uncivil?”
Jane Austen

Joyce Carol Oates
“I never change, I simply become more myself.”
Joyce Carol Oates, Solstice

William Wordsworth
“With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony, and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things.”
William Wordsworth

“From the Battle of Clontarf to Stalingrad: history brought to life”
