Book to Basics #20 The Passion by Jeanette Winterson
My completely heartfelt and in depth review of The Passion was lost due to technical difficulties... and I can't bring myself to type it all out this second time around... so I'll just share bits of insights about the book.
Obviously, losing the original review saddens me.
|“My passion for her, even though she could never return it, showed me the difference between inventing a lover and falling in love.”|
|"There's no sense in loving someone you can only wake up to by chance."|
|"We gamble with the hope of winning but it's the thought of what we might lose that excites us."|
|"Gambling is not a vice, it is an expression of our humanness. We gamble. Some do it at the gambling table, some do not. You play, you win, you play, you lose. You play."|
|"Soldiers and women. That's how the world is. Any other role is temporary. Any other role is a gesture."|
|"I don't care about the facts... I care about how I feel. How I feel will change. I want to remember that."|
Let's all welcome 2011 with a refreshed/renewed/rekindled/rediscovered Passion for life, love and the many things that make Soldiers and Women keep their hearts.
(Read The Passion to understand what I meen by keeping the heart.)
