A Beautiful Book


From the book I'm reading right now, The Lonely Hearts Hotel by Heather O'Neill:

"She understood that everyone was living a great tragedy. Her tragedy had taught her the language of tragedy- and made her able to read that of other people. In that way, she supposed it was a sort of blessing."

And this:

"Every day the average person will witness six miracles. But it isn't that we don't believe in miracles- we just don't believe that miracles are miracles. There are so many miracles all around us."

    1. I don't think I had ever heard of her either. She's a very good writer.

  2. She wrote Lullabies for Little Criminals which was an award winner here in Canada. I personally could not finish it because it was such a sad topic and so dark.
