Shirley Revill and 17 other people liked Maria Soares's review of Persuasão:
Persuasão by Jane Austen

Não consegui de todo gostar deste livro. É a terceira obra que leio de Austen e embora aprecie genuinamente o seu estilo satírico e mordaz, sinto que esta história foi totalmente telenovelesca e que não me despertou o mínimo interesse. Talvez n..." Read more of this review »

“The chip you carry has to do with being born and raised in Oakland. A concrete chip, a slab really, heavy on one side, the half side, the side not white. As for your mom's side, as for your whiteness, there's too much and not enough there to know what to do with. You're from a people who took and took and took and took. And from a people taken. You were both and neither. When you took baths, you'd stare at your brown arms against your white legs in the water and wonder what they were doing together on the same body, in the same bathtub.”
Tommy Orange, There There

Hermann Hesse
“he loved everything Siddhartha did and said and what he loved most was his spirit, his transcendent, fiery thoughts, his ardent will, his high calling. Govinda knew: he would not become a common Brahman, not a lazy official in charge of offerings; not a greedy merchant with magic spells; not a vain, vacuous speaker; not a mean, deceitful priest; and also not a decent, stupid sheep in the herd of the many.”
Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

Miguel Serrano
“On top of the Tree of Life - in the Hall of the Palace - someone had found somebody for whom he had been searching for a long, long time. And the tears of joy which were shed became the fruit of the Tree of Life, the grapes whose juice is distilled by the flute of the blue god.”
Miguel Serrano

Varun Sayal
“The part of science that you don’t understand will always look like magic to you.”
Varun Sayal, Time Crawlers

Krista Ritchie
“won’t let my weakness get the better of me. Or play with my mind.”
Krista Ritchie, Addicted After All
