Book cover for Dracula
I am all in a sea of wonders. I doubt. I fear. I think strange things, which I dare not confess to my own soul. God keep me, if only for the sake of those dear to me!

Vernice and 124 other people liked a Goodreads News & Interviews post: The Top 100 YA Books on Goodreads
“ A battlefield where wild magic fills the air. A high school where a fierce rivalry transforms an entire town. A near-future wasteland where a group of misfits seeks something greater than survival… This is the world of YA. Whether you...” Read more of this blog post »

Vernice liked an answer from Diana Gabaldon:
Diana Gabaldon
Oh, come on--you know the answer to that. You've _seen_ him fight for her under all kinds of circumstances. What, you figure he'd just have said, "Oh, well, heck--it's been good, babe, but this is too hard, catch you on the flip side?"
Robert Gustavo shared a note and highlight from
Everyday Zen by Charlotte Joko Beck
Zen is almost a thousand years old and the kinks have been worked out of it;
The fact that it is a thousand years old does not support the claim that the kinks have been worked out. Catholicism is two thousand years old, and that shit is kinky as fuck.
Sarah shared a highlight from
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer
Men are more interesting in books than they are in real life.

George Carlin
“May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.”

Mark Twain
“′Classic′ - a book which people praise and don't read.”
Mark Twain

Dr. Seuss

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
