Rochester's Wife by D.E. Stevenson
"The book was pleasant, but unremarkable. The following has absolutely nothing to do with the actual story, but it piqued my curiosity. I LOVE trivia!

I had really high hopes for it because I love Margaret Kennedy’s writing. In this early novel there were elements of her style, but the plot was just lackluster. I didn’t feel drawn toward the characters we spent the most time following. And in light ...more

Arthur Schopenhauer
“Reading is merely a surrogate for thinking for yourself; it means letting someone else direct your thoughts. Many books, moreover, serve merely to show how many ways there are of being wrong, and how far astray you yourself would go if you followed their guidance. You should read only when your own thoughts dry up, which will of course happen frequently enough even to the best heads; but to banish your own thoughts so as to take up a book is a sin against the holy ghost; it is like deserting untrammeled nature to look at a herbarium or engravings of landscapes.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, Essays and Aphorisms

Kurt Vonnegut
“Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.”
Kurt Vonnegut

Jane Austen
“Ah! There is nothing like staying at home, for real comfort.”
Jane Austen

“Everyone who has ever taken a shower has had an idea. It's the
person who gets out of the shower, dries off, and does something
about it that makes a difference.”
Nolan Bushnell

Dorothy Parker
“I'm never going to accomplish anything; that's perfectly clear to me. I'm never going to be famous. My name will never be writ large on the roster of Those Who Do Things. I don't do anything. Not one single thing. I used to bite my nails, but I don't even do that any more.”
