Becky and 854 other people liked Diane S ☔'s review of When Breath Becomes Air:
When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
"As I finished this book with tears running down my face I asked myself, "Why did you read this book? You know it was going to be sad, how could a man dying of lung cancer before the age of forty be anything but." Yet to just classify this memoir,..." Read more of this review »

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
“Will having a newborn distract from the time we have together?" she asked. "Don't you think saying goodbye to your child will make your death more painful?"

"Wouldn't it be great if it did?" I said. Lucy and I both felt that life wasn't about avoiding suffering.”

John Steinbeck
“It's so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone.”
John Steinbeck, The Winter of Our Discontent

Caitlin Moran
“And, like all the best quests, in the end, I did it all for a girl: me.”
Caitlin Moran, How to Build a Girl

Cassandra Clare
“One must always be careful of books," said Tessa, "and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

Caitlin Moran
“I cannot understand anti-abortion arguments that centre on the sanctity of life. As a species we've fairly comprehensively demonstrated that we don't believe in the sanctity of life. The shrugging acceptance of war, famine, epidemic, pain and life-long poverty shows us that, whatever we tell ourselves, we've made only the most feeble of efforts to really treat human life as sacred.”
Caitlin Moran, How to Be a Woman
