"After watching a movie about Tolstoy, The Last Station, I began researching the tolstoyan movement and was quite inspired. I picked up this book, which I confiscated from my parents' library, and am enjoying it tremendously! The depth if the many characters makes them truly dynamic and real to me. The way he has described every minute detail is beautiful! I am so glad I finally picked up this book!" Sep 08, 2010 09:09AM

Do one thing every day that scares you.
“Do one thing every day that scares you.”

David Sedaris
“His embarassment would have pleased me, but once he recovered, there would be that awkward period that sometimes culminates in a handshake. I didn't want to touch these people's hands or see things from their point of view, I just wanted to continue hating them. So I kept my mouth shut and stared off into space.”
David Sedaris

“You're well enough looked after now' says Farouq. 'We are your friends. Don't we care about you? All this bitterness, it's in your own mind. To be accepted as a human being, you must behave like one. The more human you act, the more human you'll be.' He spoils the effect of this decent speech by adding with a smirk, 'Four-foot cunt.”
Indra Sinha, Animal's People
