"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


Fatal Retribution (Raina Kirkland #1) by Diana Graves

Fatal Retribution (A Raina Kirkland Novel, #1) - Diana Graves

This was a very weird book with a funky strange writing style, that sometimes looked like what my head feels like when I haven't gotten enough sleep. If you can see past the writing and the few typos its not a bad book. I found the world interesting, as well as the plethora of supes. I'm hoping there will be more of those in the next books. The supes in this book seems very different from what I'm used to reading. I wanna know more about the vampire collectives and just who Aida is. I'm not sure I'm feeling the whole Mato thing. I'm much more interested in Damon and his dark skin.
