Gets You Thinking

“The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.” – Oscar Wilde in The Picture of Dorian Gray 

“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.” – Haruki Murakami in Norwegian Wood

“Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?” – Henry Ward Beecher

“A book is a version of the world. If you do not like it, ignore it; or offer your own version in return.” – Salman Rushdie

The Great Emily Dickenson

Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes without the words – and never stops at all.

The Soul selects her own Society — Then — shuts the Door — To her divine Majority — Present no more —Tell the truth, but tell it slant.

If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain.

The brain is wider than the sky.Forever is composed of nows.

Because I could not stop for death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves and immortality.

After great pain, a formal feeling comes. The Nerves sit ceremonious, like tombs.

I’m Nobody! Who are you? Are you — Nobody — too? Then there’s a pair of us? Don’t tell! they’d advertise — you know!

One need not be a chamber to be haunted; One need not be a house; The brain has corridors surpassing Material place.

– Janet Fitch, White Oleander

“Loneliness is the human condition. Cultivate it. The way it tunnels into you allows your soul room to grow. Never expect to outgrow loneliness. Never hope to find people who will understand you, someone to fill that space. An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you’ll ever do is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way.”
― Janet Fitch, White Oleander
