An interesting, but outdated essay on illness and how illness is viewed in society. Sontag wrote this essay in 1978 while suffering from cancer. She shows how myths and metaphors about certain illnesses can add to the suffering of patients. How these ...more

Dragonfly by Resa Nelson

Dragonfly starts out as a Clan of the Cave Bear novel on a lesser scale and goes from bad to increasingly worse. I was hoping it would turn out to be a good book on First Nations people and culture and then it disintegrated into a train wreck.

“I've learned that an achievement that seems to have been accomplished by one person probably has hundreds, maybe even thousands, of people's minds and work behind it, and I've learned that it's a privilege to be the embodiment of that work.”
Scott Kelly, Endurance: A Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery

Jodi Picoult
“If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.”
Jodi Picoult, Small Great Things

Lisa See
“No coincidence, no story.”
Lisa See, The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane

“Maybe the human brain is an object beyond the reach of metaphor, for the simple reason that it is the only object capable of creating metaphors to describe itself. There really is nothing else like it. The human brain creates the human mind, and then the human mind tries to underhand the human brain, however long it takes and whatever the cost.”
Luke Dittrich, Patient H.M.: A Story of Memory, Madness, and Family Secrets

“Be ready. Be seated. See what courage sounds like. See how brave it is to reveal yourself in this way. But above all, see what it is to still live, to profoundly influence the lives of others after you are gone, by your words.”
Paul Kalanithi, When Breath Becomes Air
