Om migMy 2020 75 Book Challenge thread is here.
My Fifty State Challenge thread is here.

I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.' - Kurt Vonnegut

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read. - Groucho Marx

It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them, and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog and I will become as generous and loving as they are. ~Anon

"We can ask and ask but we can't have again what once seemed ours for ever-the way things looked, that church alone in the fields, a bed on a belfry floor, a remembered voice, the touch of a hand, a loved face. They've gone and you can only wait for the pain to pass." J. L. Carr, A Month in the Country

"There ought to be a whole separate language, she thought, for words that are truer than other words - for perfect absolute truth." - Anne Tyler, Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant

"There's only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you've got to be kind." - Kurt Vonnegut, God Bless You, Mr Rosewater

“Memory is a kind of homesickness, and like homesickness, it falls short of the actualities on almost every count. In the end, I come to think of the wondrous writer Isak Dinesen when she was taken up in a biplane over the green resplendent highlands of Kenya and arrived back to earth to say, ‘The language is short of words for the experiences of flying, and will have to invent new words with time.’ So do I wait for the language of memory to come onto the exact tones of how the three of us, across our three generations and our separations of personality, became something-both-more-and-less-than-a-family and different from anything sheathed in any of the other phrases of kinship.” - Ivan Doig, This House of Sky

Om mitt bibliotekThere is no reason why most of the books I own but have never actually read should be more or less in one place. They just are. Maybe they quietly gravitated into the sitting room one by one, to sob and huddle together for warmth. - Susan Hill, Howards End is on the Landing

All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you; the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. - Ernest Hemingway

Our lives are steered by uncertainties... if we persevere & remain generous of heart, we may be granted a moment of supreme lucidity—a moment in which all that has happened to us suddenly comes into focus as a necessary course of events" —A Gentleman In Moscow
