Some books are so poetic that the words slow you down and whisper their way into your heart. Nina George's writing is exactly like that. Here are some of quotes that I highlighted:
"Didn't they say that beauty was a state of soul? And if her soul was loved, a woman would be transformed into a wondrous creature, however ordinary her looks. Love changed a woman's soul, and she became beautiful, for a few minutes or forever."
"A young woman's beauty makes up for her lack of intelligence; and old woman's intelligence makes up for her lack of beauty."
"Learn to love it, son. Learn to love what you do, whatever it is, and you won't have any problems. You'll suffer, but then you'll feel, and when you feel, you're alive. You need troubles to be alive - otherwise you're dead!"
"As long as you can walk upright, you will find a walking stick. As long as you are brave, someone will help you."
"And it (life) began when you first took a risk, failed and realized that you'd survived the failure. With that knowledge, you could risk anything."
"One always has to consider the individual. For every person is an individual, and everyone has individual, unique reasons. And every individual counts."
