Nicole Shelby Nicole Shelby said: " I will read anything by Terry Pratchett - I adore his works filled with intelligence, humor, and humanity.

I will read anything by Neil Gaiman - I adore his works of imagination and heart.

Combined? Brilliant.

Book cover for Future Perfect: A Skeptic’s Search for an Honest Mystic
The worse the state of the world grows, the more intensely I try for inner perfection and power. I fight for a small world of humanity and tenderness. —Anaïs Nin, June 1942
Charles Dickens
“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach.”
Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

Sam Harris
“You can't take credit for your talents, but it matters that you use them. You can't really be blamed for your weaknesses, but it matters that you correct them. So pride and shame don't make a lot of sense, in the final analysis, but they weren't much fun anyway.”
Sam Harris

Steven Moffat
“We're all stories, in the end.”
Steven Moffat

“Your new life is going to cost you your old one.
It’s going to cost you your comfort zone and your sense
of direction.
It’s going to cost you relationships and friends.
It’s going to cost you being liked and understood.
It doesn’t matter.
The people who are meant for you are going to meet you
on the other side. You’re going to build a new comfort
zone around the things that actually move you forward.
Instead of being liked, you’re going to be loved. Instead of
being understood, you’re going to be seen.
All you’re going to lose is what was built for a person you
no longer are.”
Brianna Wiest, The Mountain Is You: Transforming Self-Sabotage Into Self-Mastery

“The thing she had once loved about swimming was the disappearing. In the water, her focus had been so pure that she thought of nothing else. Any school or home worries vanished. The art of swimming – she supposed like any art – was about - - purity. The more focused you were on the activity, the less focused you were on everything else. You kind of stopped being you and became the thing you were doing.”
Haig Matt, The Midnight Library
