Daily Candy A to Z by DailyCandy Inc.
"Daily Candy A to Z is a fun and quirky book with very cute illlustrations. The tips are somewhat helpful, but not at all practical. It was a fun read but it's not something I would apply to my daily life religiously. Some tips are must knows but i..." Read more of this review »

“How does one know if she has forgiven? You tend to feel sorrow over the circumstance instead of rage, you tend to feel sorry for the person rather than angry with him. You tend to have nothing left to say about it all.”
Clarissa Pinkola Estés
Jetsettica and 14 other people liked Andrea's review of Flowers for Algernon:
Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
"The short novel packs the most powerful emotional punch of any book I have ever read, far greater than that of the denoument of Ender's game. It so transcends the vast majority of science fiction of the 20th century that it is hard to write a revi..." Read more of this review »

“Complex PTSD consists of of six symptom clusters, which also have been described in terms of dissociation of personality. Of course, people who receive this diagnosis often also suffer from other problems as well, and as noted earlier, diagnostic categories may overlap significantly. The symptom clusters are as follows:
Alterations in Regulation of Affect ( Emotion ) and Impulses
Changes in Relationship with others
Somatic Symptoms
Changes in Meaning
Changes in the perception of Self
Changes in Attention and Consciousness”
Suzette Boon, Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation: Skills Training for Patients and Therapists

“Changes in Relationship with others:
It is especially hard to trust other people if you have been repeatedly abused, abandoned or betrayed as a child. Mistrust makes it very difficult to make friends, and to be able to distinguish between good and bad intentions in other people. Some parts do not seem to trust anyone, while other parts may be so vulnerable and needy that they do not pay attention to clues that perhaps a person is not trustworthy. Some parts like to be close to others or feel a desperate need to be close and taken care of, while other parts fear being close or actively dislike people. Some parts are afraid of being in relationships while others are afraid of being rejected or criticized. This naturally sets up major internal as well as relational conflicts.”
Suzette Boon, Coping with Trauma-Related Dissociation: Skills Training for Patients and Therapists

Roald Dahl
“What she needed was just one person, one wise and sympathetic grown-up who could help her.”
Roald Dahl, Matilda

Sid Fleischman
“What was he looking for, a prince in fine velvets and a crown cocked on his head? Was it clothes that made a prince, Jemmy wondered, just as rags made a street boy?”
Sid Fleischman, The Whipping Boy

Dante Gabriel Rossetti
“Sometimes thou seem'st not as thyself alone, But as the meaning of all things that are.”
Dante Gabriel Rossetti
