"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


The Face of Death (Smoky Barrett, #2) by Cody McFadyen

The Face of Death - Cody McFadyen

This was almost as good as the first one, however it suffered a bit from repetitions from the first book. I guess that's fine if there has been some time in between reads but one day to the next, then that gets very visible and frankly I just skipped those parts. I think that's my only negative experience whilst reading this book. 
It was very very good, although this time I knew who the culprit was the minute we met him and I rarely know that beforehand. What makes this book so good was the graphic detailing and the book in the book part, where we get Sarah's story. The plot may have been slightly more see-through than the first book, but I pretty much still loved it.
