Heretics Anonymous by Katie Henry
"A book that is both critical of religion and gives grace to its imperfections. While some of the major characterization was a bit one-dimensional, I ultimately appreciated the author's looking at religion through both a critical and accepting lens..."

Strongly reported and written compellingly. Couldn’t put it down. Features the most searing closing page I’ve read in a long time.

Willa Cather
“People have to snatch at happiness when they can, in this world. It is always easier to lose than to find.”
Willa Cather, O Pioneers!

Frank Schaeffer
“It seems to me that a spiritual sensibility is built into human nature. Formal religion may or may not disappear but art, love and a desire to find beauty will remain.”
Frank Schaeffer, Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God: How to give love, create beauty and find peace

Charlotte Brontë
“I have now been married ten years. I know what it is to live entirely for and with what I love best on earth. I hold myself supremely blest - blest beyond what language can express; because I am my husband's life as fully as he is mine. No woman was ever nearer to her mate than I am: ever more absolutely bone of his bone and flesh of his flesh. I know no weariness of my Edward's society: he knows none of mine, any more than we each do the pulsation of the heart that beats in our separate bosoms; consequently, we are ever together. To be together is for us to be at once free as in solitude, as gay as in company. We talk, I believe, all day long: to talk to each other is but more animated and an audible thinking. All my confidence is bestowed on him, all his confidence is devoted to me; we are precisely suited in character - perfect concord is the result.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“I am a part of everything that I have read.”

John Green
“because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff. Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.”
John Green
