Blindness by José Saramago
"Nope. Just nope. I was disappointed when the characters found food--I was secretly hoping they'd starve to death so this book would end. "

I checked this out from the library to help a friend to write an analysis paper. She's hates analysis. But I love it! But in the end, I abandoned her with no help because I'm too sensitive to graphic scenes and violence. I quit not even a quarter in ...more

Mary and 1748 other people liked J.G. Keely's review of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell:
Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke

Ramana Maharshi
“Your own Self-Realization is the greatest service you can render the world.”
Ramana Maharshi

Brandon Sanderson
“You see, that is the sad, sorry, terrible thing about sarcasm.

It's really funny.”
Brandon Sanderson, Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians

Augusten Burroughs
“Some damage is too severe, some harm endures. And what you have to do is accept it. And by accept it I mean, don’t be the paralyzed person in the bed who is waiting to walk again. Realize, it’s never gonna happen. And find some other way to get around –swing from a vine, get a Mad Max wheelchair. Anything but…wait.”
Augusten Burroughs

Brandon Sanderson
“Personally, I like it much better when someone else does the decision making. That way you have legitimate grounds to whine and complain. I tend to find both whining and complaining quite interesting and amusing, though sometimes--unfortunately--it's hard to choose which one of the two I want to do.
Sigh. LIfe can be so tough sometimes.”
Brandon Sanderson, Alcatraz Versus the Scrivener's Bones

Roald Dahl
“If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”
Roald Dahl
