The Ingenious Edgar Jones by Elizabeth Garner
"Fascinating, heartbreaking and thought-provoking. I was completely swept away by the tale of this ingenious boy and his loving, frail parents with their all-too-recognizable failings. The story sweeps you along, up to the very last sentence, as yo..." Read more of this review »
The ingenious Edgar Jones by Elizabeth Garner

"(Dug review out of the depths of LiveJournal.)

William Shakespeare
“Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.”
William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

Milan Kundera
“Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Frank Zappa
“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

Albert Camus
“Don’t walk in front of me… I may not follow
Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead
Walk beside me… just be my friend”
Albert Camus

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
