"It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. " -- Rose Kennedy

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. ”  -- Plato

“The life of the dead is set in the memory of the living. ”  -- Marcus Tullius Cicero

“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love. ”  -- Washington Irving

“We all wear masks and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing our own skin.”  -- André Berthiaume

“I am an invisible man. No I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe: Nor am I one of your Hollywood movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids - and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, simply because people refuse to see me.”  -- Ralph Ellison

“Without knowledge, life is no more than the shadow of death.”  -- Molière

“Everyone calls himself a friend, but only a fool relies on it: nothing is commoner than the name, nothing rarer than the thing.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine

“Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine


Dark Currents (Agent of Hel #1) by Jacqueline Carey

Dark Currents: Agent of Hel - Jacqueline Carey

I'm very glad that I chose this book to be my first read of 2015. It was really good and kept me entranced throughout. I like the world that the author has shown and the various supernaturals. I hope to see a lot more of these in the other books. I'm not so much a fan of the vampire queen. I think Daisy sounds intriguing and her friends almost as much.

I'm a fan of Lurine and I hope that there will be much more of her. I can't decide who I like the best of Cody, Stefan or Sinclair. But overall very nice read and I'm off to the next one.
