"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


Crossing the Line (The Wess'har Wars #2) by Karen Traviss

Crossing the Line - Karen Traviss

Wow what a book and can I just say that if I hadn't peeked at book 3's blurb I would be really nervous by now.

What Shan did blew me away, I still can't believe she just stepped out in the vacuum. I can't wait to see her again. I hope she'll be back shortly into book 3.

(show spoiler)

Ugh and I can't believe Lindsay is still around. She really pisses me off. What a shallow human being. And Rayat, I think those 2 are so despicable, that I'm amazed they're not dead, yet. I'm really hoping that will happen soon. 

I think the plot is great and I can't wait to see what next book will bring.

I'm curious as to see how the wess'har from the world before differs from the new world.
