"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


One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress #2) by Jeaniene Frost

One Foot in the Grave - Jeaniene Frost

Even though I had to readjust the rating after finishing my reread I still thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. 

I think I liked both parts the same and especially the moments with Tate - I think he is one of the loveliest side chars I've seen in a while. And then Bones came back. Can't say I'm a fan of the whole Felicity thing nor later in the book, when Annette arrives. I'm not a fan of her in this book at all.

I loved the last chapter, so nice getting Dave back

(show spoiler)

It was also nice to see Spade again and meeting Mencheres - I'm looking forward to reading the next couple of books in the series.
