And now some humor:
This post is by Mairi and yes I am a self proclaimed book nerd ! This is typical of me trying to resist a book sale …
If you are like me, please come to our sale, resistance is futile …

Can you guess who wrote some of these quotes? I just put down some random ones from books I read as a child, teen and adult.
“We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.”
“Now I see! We are all just dots, together!”
“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
“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.”
“Books are my friends, my companions. They make me laugh and cry and find meaning in life.”
“UNLESS someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
“The words were on their way, and when they arrived, she would hold them in her hands like clouds, and she would ring them out like the rain.”
“The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.”
