"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


 

Crush (Karen Vail #2) by Alan Jacobson

Crush: Karen Vail Novel #2 - Alan Jacobson

When I started this book, it was with the knowledge that it would end with a cliffhanger. 

And now that I'm done with the book I can honestly say, that it didn't bother me as much as it could have.

I don't think the characters have been entirely fleshed out, so I'm not sure I care. 

I had a bit of a hunch about writing style last book that got confirmed in this one. I don't like it very much. It feels like a condescending lecture and pretty much showy and I'm left feeling very annoyed.

I am however terrible curious and still hoping the writing will improve, so next book I'll certainly read, as for the next thereafter, who knows - Might change my mind.

I did like Dixon. I would like to see more of her- As for Robby? Hmm I don't know him, no feel for him.

I totally peeked in the reviews for the 3rd book and therefor I know what happens and now I've settled my curiosity so whether I'll return for the next book, I don't know.
