My slice of heaven



2021 BOOKS

"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


 

Sharing Jewel

Sharing Jewel - P.S. Love I think this is gonna be a book that i'm gonna have a love/hate relationship with.I found Jewel to be quite naive in her worldview. Daniel the opposite and way to open minded as to what society perceives as normal - I so didn't want to read bout all the pure incest chat. And the whole "if it arouses you, then it means you secretly want it", that really ticked me of. And David, - i don't do well with lying, I don't get why he didn't just lay all the cards on the table. A man is no less of a man just because of sterility.And whats with the need to get married just because of a pregnancy? I don't get that and it did in fact piss me severely off. Doing whats right, mean be there, not getting a piece of paper.To the more positive side, i did mostly enjoy this book. There was a lot of new fancy words that i had to google(and i love to goggle), at least in the first ½ of the book. And only one mistake where a word was forgotten from what snagged my attention.
