Mandafofanda Reads Lots

The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?

And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?

- Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can't Avoid - Lemony Snicket I could never give someone one of those books that are full of inspirational quotes. But if I was to give someone a book of "inspirations", this would be it. This book is full of all the off-beat humour, odd observations and tilt-your-head-and-squint wisdom that characterize his Series of Unfortunate Events books that I loved.

This book also has one of the best quotes about love that I've ever heard:
"One of the remarkable things about love is that, despite very irritating people writing poems and songs about how pleasant it is, it really is quite pleasant."
