Silvio and 3 other people liked Rachel's review of Willy:
Willy by Robert Dunbar
"I really had to think about this one.

When I started this book, I was really kind of on the fence. While I understood the concept, and, in turn, the stream-of-consciousness and seemingly unedited writing style, it was hard to focus on what was goin..." Read more of this review »

Silvio liked a quote
2856822
“The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it's not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person--without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other.”
Osho
Silvio liked a quote
2856822
“That is the simple secret of happiness. Whatever you are doing, don’t let past move your mind; don’t let future disturb you. Because the past is no more, and the future is not yet. To live in the memories, to live in the imagination, is to live in the non-existential. And when you are living in the non-existential, you are missing that which is existential. Naturally you will be miserable, because you will miss your whole life.”

“If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. No use being a damn fool about it.”
W.C. Fields

Oscar Wilde
“The truth is rarely pure and never simple.”
Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest

Oscar Wilde
“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Mark Twain
“I was gratified to be able to answer promptly, and I did. I said I didn’t know.”
Mark Twain
