Oh no!

I bow to those who keep their hearts open when it is most difficult, those who refuse to keep their armor on any longer than they have to, those who recognize the courage at the heart of vulnerability. - Jeff Brown

I'm sorry if you don't like my Honesty, but to be fair I don't like your lies.

Sometimes it's better to push someone away...not because you stopped loving them but because you can't take the pain anymore.

I was never a prolific reader but I do enjoy a good book. I have only stayed up until dawn with a book from one author Ė yeah he will be missed by me. R.I.P.

Your beliefs donít make you a better person, your behavior does.

I remember reading hunt for red October when I was a kid. My grandfather and I were so excited to go see it in the theater and compare notes with the book. He was a great writer and left me with a great memory.
