It pains me greatly to give this book a 2-star review, but it is what it is. I loved the style of writing, but the story just wasn't moving. I got over 100 pages into the book, and the story was still (mostly) in the same place it started. I may try ...more

Emily Brontë
“Be with me always - take any form - drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I can not live without my life! I can not live without my soul!”
Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

Maya Angelou
“I don't trust anyone who doesn't laugh.”
Maya Angelou

Neal A. Maxwell
“When the real history of mankind is fully disclosed, will it feature the echoes of gunfire or the shaping sound of lullabies? The great armistices made by military men or the peacemaking of women in homes and in neighborhoods? Will what happened in cradles and kitchens prove to be more controlling than what happened in congresses? When the surf of the centuries has made the great pyramids so much sand, the everlasting family will still be standing, because it is a celestial institution, formed outside telestial time.”
Neal A. Maxwell

Pablo Picasso
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
