Tastebuds are trained, so why do we load kids with sugar, chicken fingers and fries? The history of feeding children is fascinating and well told, from gruel forward. How we think of children and food today is equally interesting. Well worth reading.

"Let me just say, reading a dystopian novel set in my province felt very strange.

This was the only book of the four Canada Reads 2018 contenders that really interested me, and my god did I love it. It is so lucid and gripping; the kind of book that..." Read more of this review »

Elie Wiesel
“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”
Elie Wiesel

Martin Luther King Jr.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

Alexandre Dumas
“Never fear quarrels, but seek hazardous adventures.”
Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Walt Whitman
“Resist much, obey little.”
Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass
