The End of February…..
The New Year is old and for me, time could not have flown fast enough! One of the most stressful months for me both professionally and personally, all I can say, good riddance! For the first time, I am glad to bid adieu to the winter, which brought more unpleasantness than acceptable and look forward to the new chapters of Summers; yes even hot Indian summers! As, always, I thank the powers that be for granting us books, that helped me tide over home-hospitals-sick dad-at-home-nurses-at-home-professional disappointments- home-job-doctor-job paradigm!
From The East of Eden by John Steinbeck –
“But the Hebrew word, the word timshel—‘Thou mayest’— that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if ‘Thou mayest’—it is also true that ‘Thou mayest not.”
From A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf
“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well! “
From Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne
“If to live in his style is to eccentric, it must be confessed, that this something good in eccentricity”
From Harry Heathcote of Gangoil by Anthony Trollope
“What does a man live for except to alter things? When a man clear the forest and sows corns, does he not alter things?”
From The Dairy of a Nobody by George Grossmith
“What’s the good of a home, if you are never in it?”
That was my reading for the month of February. I am immensely glad that despite all the chaos, I was able to stick to my only Reading Challenge of the year – The Official 2018 TBR Pile Challenge and complete A Room of One’s Own as planned for the month, though I still need to post the review. In fact, I need to blog way more! Here’s hoping March brings in that much needed relief to one and all……
