The Help by Kathryn Stockett
"I was a good, quick read. Engaging characters, interesting plot and a fair amount of twists to keep the pages turning. This is a great read for book clubs because the characters tend to bring out different emotions. The biggest bone I have to pick..." Read more of this review »

One thing , this book purpose is to show you living in the hood is not the way to go atleast living there.
There was no likable characters for me. I skipped past Molly parts.....
quick read dramatic in most parts and no common sense in the rest.

Clarissa Pinkola Estés
“Practice listening to your intuition, your inner voice; ask questions; be curious; see what you see; hear what you hear; and then act upon what you know to be true. These intuitive powers were given to your soul at birth.”
Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype

“Being a visionary is a blessing and a curse, you're blessed to see things other people are not able to see but you are cursed to sit in it alone”
David Banner

“How many times has each of us been in a difficult place and thought we were alone? Standing on nothing. Perhaps it is only in the empty space of those moments we can truly feel God's breath at our necks. His hands beneath our feet. Step out on nothing? Yes. Step out on faith.”
Byron Pitts

“Ignorance is bliss
Knowing is depressing
Wisdom is peace”

Nelly Sachs
“The Woman Who Forgot Everything

But in old age all drifts in blurred immensities.
The little things fly off and up like bees.

You forgot all the words and forgot the object too;
And reached your enemy a hand where roses and nettles grew.”
