This was the second novel I ever read. I know it is sad but it put me on a journey to love books. The quotation from the Silver Swan song has left an impression on my life. Thank you!
The Hidden Europe by Francis Tapon

The Hidden Europe by Francis Tapon
"

I LOVE this book- it's not a travel guide, exactly, but a culture guide- beware, though. The author spares no one in his offbeat, sometimes deprecating but often hilarious descriptions of the people and places he costs as he "couch surfs" across..." Read more of this review »

Hilarious work. A friend gave a as a gift and I enjoyed reading. My valve closes when I think of the escape he got. He should have been punished for causing the mother all that pain.

Albert Camus
“Every act of rebellion expresses a nostalgia for innocence and an appeal to the essence of being.”
Albert Camus, The Rebel

William Shakespeare
“Come away, come away, Death,
And in sad cypress let me be laid;
Fly away, fly away, breath,
I am slain by a fair cruel maid.
My shroud of white stuck all with yew, O prepare it!
My part of death no one so true did share it.

Not a flower, not a flower sweet,
On my black coffin let there be strewn:
Not a friend, not a friend greet
My poor corpse, where my bones shall be thrown.
A thousand thousand sighs to save, lay me O where
Sad true lover never find my grave, to weep there!”
William Shakespeare, Twelfth night

“Unless it's mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it's a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life. Love shouldn't be one of them.”
Dreams for an Insomniac
