Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

Clear rating
Funny, dark, and ever so human. Sometimes it struck painfully close to home so I just had to finish it, reading the last 100+ pages in one sitting. Ultimately it was uplifting and beautifully executed.

Kakuzō Okakura
“Those of us who know not the secret of properly regulating our own existence on this tumultuous sea of foolish troubles we call life are constantly in a state of misery while vainly trying to appear happy and contented. We stagger in the attempt to keep our moral equilibrium and see forerunners
of the tempest in every cloud that floats on the horizon. Yet there is joy and beauty in the roll of the billows as they sweep outward toward eternity. Why not enter into their spirit, or, like Liethse, ride upon the hurricane itself?”
Okakuro Kakuzo

Kakuzō Okakura
“For life is an expression, our unconscious actions the constant betrayal of our innermost thought.”
Kakuzo Okakura, The Book of Tea

Yann Martel
“The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no? And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Gabriel García Márquez
“What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.”
Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Albert Einstein
“If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.”
Albert Einstein
