Random Quote Thursday

  1. One of the things I admire and envy in you is that you post these things that are so worth sharing and they are not long or complicated or full of images and detail. They are just true. Thank you.

  2. This is one of my favorite quotes. The last sentence is so unsettling to me for so many reasons. Comforting and unsettling. Does that make sense? It should.

    Sometimes I catch my reflection and think it's Christopher Walken. I think it's the hair.

  3. Oh shit - this is too good. How come I've never read this one before? I agree with TL - comforting and unsettling - makes absolute sense - comforting? You are not alone. Unsettling? It's too much the truth.
    This is going to require some further familiarity on my part -- stay tuned.

  4. Love this, hmmm yes comforting and unsettling!

  5. Wow. I keep adding books to my to-read list.
