Kiki Kiki said: " I'm putting this on hold, and I might come back to it at a later date.

I can't really write a full review for this and nor can I rate it, the reason being that this isn't a DNF. Or at least it's not a DNF in the conventional sense. I don't know what

"What I love about Kip Thorne's narration is that it's so accessible, as if he popped round for a cuppa and we got to chatting about tendex lines. This book simplifies its subject matter but never patronises the reader. What a wonderful way to share the majesty of physics." Jul 18, 2019 09:09AM

Anne Frank
“People can tell you to keep your mouth shut, but that doesn't stop you from having your own opinion.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Pablo Neruda
“Take bread away from me, if you wish,
take air away, but
do not take from me your laughter.

Do not take away the rose,
the lance flower that you pluck,
the water that suddenly
bursts forth in joy,
the sudden wave
of silver born in you.

My struggle is harsh and I come back
with eyes tired
at times from having seen
the unchanging earth,
but when your laughter enters
it rises to the sky seeking me
and it opens for me all
the doors of life.

My love, in the darkest
hour your laughter
opens, and if suddenly
you see my blood staining
the stones of the street,
laugh, because your laughter
will be for my hands
like a fresh sword.

Next to the sea in the autumn,
your laughter must raise
its foamy cascade,
and in the spring, love,
I want your laughter like
the flower I was waiting for,
the blue flower, the rose
of my echoing country.

Laugh at the night,
at the day, at the moon,
laugh at the twisted
streets of the island,
laugh at this clumsy
fool who loves you,
but when I open
my eyes and close them,
when my steps go,
when my steps return,
deny me bread, air,
light, spring,
but never your laughter. ”
Pablo Neruda

Stephen King
“The thing under my bed waiting to grab my ankle isn't real. I know that, and I also know that if I'm careful to keep my foot under the covers, it will never be able to grab my ankle.”
Stephen King, Night Shift

Julie Andrews Edwards
“Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th.”
Julie Andrews Edwards

Elizabeth May
“You know my mother thinks the waltz is indecent."

"Your mother would find the sight of a chair leg indecent.”
Elizabeth May, The Falconer
