The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
"A paraphrase. When my ex-husband went out one evening from unsettling dreams of how faraway his wife was, he went out drinking and whoring. Next morning he found himself changed in his bed into a monstrous vermin. A cockroach. Much he knew it thou..." Read more of this review »

Ted Hughes
“The only calibration that counts is how much heart people invest, how much they ignore their fears of being hurt or caught out or humiliated. And the only thing people regret is that they didn't live boldly enough, that they didn't invest enough heart, didn't love enough. Nothing else really counts at all.”
Ted Hughes, Letters of Ted Hughes

Katharine Graham
“The longer I live, the more I observe that carrying around anger is the most debilitating to the person who bears it.”
Katharine Graham

Joyce Kilmer
“I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.”
Joyce Kilmer, Trees & Other Poems

Richard Feynman
“Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn't matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough.”
Richard Feynman

Sharon Olds
“I was a late bloomer. But anyone who blooms at all, ever, is very lucky. ”
Sharon Olds
