Tracey and 3 other people liked Philippa's review of Autumn:
Autumn by Ali Smith
"I can't say I fully understood it, but I know I liked it. I think Ali Smith is an arty art type - she wants the reader to look at this book again and again like you would a painting. She mentions collages, and that's what it feels like to me. Lots..." Read more of this review »

Oscar Wilde
“The basis of optimism is sheer terror.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Sylvia Plath
“If you expect nothing from somebody you are never disappointed.”
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

Paul Bowles
“Death is always on the way, but the fact that you don't know when it will arrive seems to take away from the finiteness of life. It's that terrible precision that we hate so much. But because we don't know, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that's so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless.”
Paul Bowles, The Sheltering Sky

Augusten Burroughs
“I myself am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.”
Augusten Burroughs, Magical Thinking

Elizabeth Gilbert
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master...”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
