Educated by Tara Westover
"A captivating memoir, well written, easy to tear through, and kind of heartbreaking. It was positioned by some as a way to understand what is happening in America, and you certainly got to see a family that is off the grid and very poor. But I thi..." Read more of this review »

"I think from this book i learned what tripping on some serious shit must be like. If are masochistic, you might like it (but it might be dangerous)."

E.M. Forster
“My conviction,” says the mystic, “gains infinitely the moment another soul will believe in it,” and they had agreed that there was something beyond life’s daily grey.”
E.M. Forster, The Works of E. M. Forster

E.M. Forster
“it was English, and the wych-elm that she saw from the window was an English tree. No report had prepared her for its peculiar glory. It was neither warrior, nor lover, nor god; in none of these roles do the English excel. It was a comrade bending over the house, strength and adventure in its roots, but in its utmost fingers tenderness, and the girth, that a dozen men could not have spanned, became in the end evanescent, till pale bud clusters seemed to float in the air. It was a comrade.”
E.M. Forster, The Works of E. M. Forster

“Once we know, we’re empowered.”
Elevia DeNobelia, Syl Sabastian

Matt Mikalatos
“When the stars and the moon met, a song began among the moonside Kakri. “Where is the fountain which brought joy to the city, clean and clear at its heart?” There were no instruments, just voices. The starside Kakri answered, also in song, “It has been carried away, the water spilled to the sand, the water given to the sun.” The song, beautiful and strange, reached out to Jason like the tendrils of a plant opening in the morning dew. He felt himself alive, transported, and filled with a deep, melancholy sadness.”
Matt Mikalatos, The Crescent Stone

“The world owes you nothing because the universe has already given you everything.”
Matshona Dhliwayo
