Nora and 49 other people liked Sarah's review of In the Unlikely Event:
In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume
"I have a rotation of things I use for bookmarks, and one of them is a recycled piece of mailing cardboard I write good quotes on. I started Judy Blume's latest with that bookmark, thinking this powerhouse would surely give me some good words to co..." Read more of this review »

Kate Jacobs
“Cat, I'll let you in on a little secret. We don't all love our jobs every day. And doing something you have passion for doesn't make the work part of it any easier...It just makes you less likely to quit.”
Kate Jacobs, The Friday Night Knitting Club

Jimmy Carter
“Since 2001, the U.S. government has abandoned its role as a champion of human rights and has perpetrated terrible and illegal abuses in prisons in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo, sent prisoners secretly to other nations to be tortured, denied the applicability of the Geneva Convention restraints, and severely restricted time-honored civil liberties within our own country. Certain political leaders of other nations, who are inclined to perpetrate human rights abuses to quiet dissenting voices and were previously restrained by positive influence from Washington, now feel free to emulate or exceed the abuses approved by American leaders.”
Jimmy Carter, Beyond the White House: Waging Peace, Fighting Disease, Building Hope

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious
“Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?”
Mary Oliver

“At one point, early on, some public figures even asked whether it 'made sense' to rebuild New Orleans. Would you let your own mother die because it didn't make financial sense to spend the money to treat her, or because you were too busy to spend the time to heal her sick spirit?”
Tom Piazza, Why New Orleans Matters

Suzanne Collins
“I really can't think about kissing when I've got a rebellion to incite. ”
Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire
