"Robinson bogs his book down with unnecessary details and droning lists between chapters. Why? Are these Swan's lists? At this point Swan makes it to Earth, after being weird on Mercury and one of the inhabited asteroids near Jupiter. I'm slogging onward. How did this win an award now?" Jul 30, 2018 11:19AM

2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson
"
Abandoning this one at about the 50% mark. I gave it the ol' college try, but turns out this really ain't for me. Densely written, huge passages of world-building (and terraforming), but not enough of a propulsive plot or engaging characters to ke..." Read more of this review »

Pablo Neruda
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

L. Ron Hubbard
“The wise man tests before he talks. The critic but follows the fad of a cynical and apathetic age.”
L. Ron Hubbard

Eleanor Roosevelt
“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
Eleanor Roosevelt, This is My Story

William W. Purkey
“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey

Ray Bradbury
“You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”
Ray Bradbury
