The gothic novel is somewhat outdated according to some people. Well, with this writer it isn't anymore. This book is preferably read somewhere end of October, when the darkness creeps in and Halloween is on it's way. But even on every other day in t ...more

The Heart's Invisible Furies by John Boyne
Maybe there were no villains in my mother’s story at all. Just men and women, trying to do their best by each other. And failing.

At first I wasn't so very much enthusiastic about this book, but then it sort of captured me and drew me into a fantastic adventure. It is an adventurous story and excellently written in a way that it is hard to stop reading. The school (yes, there i ...more

Stephen King, meester in sfeervertellingen doet het hier uitermate goed, als hij de sfeer van Maine, New England, USA weergeeft. En dat daar iets sinisters in de bossen en de kleine dorpjes rondsluipt, maakt hij hier aannemelijk. Okay, het is over de ...more

“End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Christina Rossetti
When I Am Dead, My Dearest

When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress-tree:
Be the green grass above me
With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember,
And if thou wilt, forget.

I shall not see the shadows,
I shall not feel the rain;
I shall not hear the nightingale
Sing on, as if in pain:
And dreaming through the twilight
That doth not rise nor set,
Haply I may remember,
And haply may forget.”
Christina Rossetti, Complete Poems

Dr. Seuss
“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”
Dr. Seuss

William Shakespeare
“When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.”
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
