"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


Blood Life Seeker (Kindred #2) by Nicola Claire

Blood Life Seeker - Nicola Claire

The book started out fairly well I should say, but unfortunately it didn't stay that way for me. I'm feeling pretty annoyed now. I'll start with the more pleasant stuff. 

I really like the way Lucinda's powers have grown to be. I like the dream walking - That's a pretty nifty trick. I like Gregor a lot more than I do Michel right about now. That may change IDK, but for now Gregor's the one I'm rooting for. 

I also think this series resembles another series in particular and that just increases my irritation. The plot with the Lunctio is just too damn familiar. 

I think Michel is an ass, I think he is very weak and I don't trust him. 

I can't say Lucinda is much different with her confusion and wishy washy opinions and what not.

I'll continue this series for now, because despite my aggravations with parts of it, it was actually hard to put down.
