Underground Airlines by Ben H. Winters
"Alright so I'm DNF'ing this and giving it 2.5 rounded up to 3 Stars. I listened to 60% and had a hard time staying with the story. I'm not sure why but it's just not doing it for me. There are too many references to pop culture. I mean Michael Jac..." Read more of this review »

A.A. Milne
“Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That's the problem.”
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
“The only reason you say that race was not an issue is because you wish it was not. We all wish it was not. But it’s a lie. I came from a country where race was not an issue; I did not think of myself as black and I only became black when I came to America. When you are black in America and you fall in love with a white person, race doesn’t matter when you’re alone together because it’s just you and your love. But the minute you step outside, race matters. But we don’t talk about it. We don’t even tell our white partners the small things that piss us off and the things we wish they understood better, because we’re worried they will say we’re overreacting, or we’re being too sensitive. And we don’t want them to say, Look how far we’ve come, just forty years ago it would have been illegal for us to even be a couple blah blah blah, because you know what we’re thinking when they say that? We’re thinking why the fuck should it ever have been illegal anyway? But we don’t say any of this stuff. We let it pile up inside our heads and when we come to nice liberal dinners like this, we say that race doesn’t matter because that’s what we’re supposed to say, to keep our nice liberal friends comfortable. It’s true. I speak from experience.”
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Americanah

A.A. Milne
“Sometimes,' said Pooh, 'the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
A.A. Milne

A.A. Milne
“What I like doing best is Nothing."

"How do you do Nothing," asked Pooh after he had wondered for a long time.

"Well, it's when people call out at you just as you're going off to do it, 'What are you going to do, Christopher Robin?' and you say, 'Oh, Nothing,' and then you go and do it.

It means just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering."

"Oh!" said Pooh.”
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

A.A. Milne
“Hallo, Rabbit,” he said, “is that you?”
"Let’s pretend it isn’t,” said Rabbit, “and see what happens.”
A.A. Milne
