Lovely gothic fantasy on love, life and death
Loved it. Can't wait to see the TV series
A wonderful praise to love's essence, nature and underlying reality. A contemporary story of the destiny changing and liberating force of love, fueled by the fascinating spiritual bond between the famous Persian poet Rumi and Sufi dervish Shams of Tabriz
"There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything [...] Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this will have been for naught"
Outliers “They are products of history and community, of opportunity and legacy. Their success is not exceptional or mysterious. It is grounded in a web of advantages and inheritances, some deserved, some not, some earned, some just plain lucky - but all critical to making them who they are. The outlier, in the end, is not an outlier at all“
"Beneath the Saffron Moon" - just couldn't find the English version to tag this book. The adventures of an educated woman in search of freedom and love in a way that was not acceptable in Victorian England. Her adventures are partly interlaced with the travels of Richard Francis Burton and are set mostly in the deserts of 19th century Arabia, where she unexpectedly finds herself on a growth of the soul journey in search for true love
Could be a helpful approach in dealing with negative emotions and life patterns. As I haven't read anything else yet on epigenetics and psychogenealogy, it reminded me of Karol Truman's "Feelings buried alive never die", Dr Lazarev's books on karma and Dr Bruce Lipton's "Biology of Belief" (who is actually also mentioned in this book)
"The ethical is always more robust than the legal. Over time, it is the legal that should converge to the ethical, never the reverse. Hence: Laws come and go; ethics stay."
"The context in which you operate sets the lens through which others will perceive you and your charisma. Choosing the right charisma style depends on your personality, goals and the situation."
Written by four hands, by the authors of "Love in Lowercase" and "Desire for Chocolate", respectively, the book reminds us in a heart-warming exquisite way to never forget that the most beautiful place in the world is right here and happiness resides in fully enjoying the present moment
Accabadora (the one who finishes) is the last mother, the one who ends the agony of a human being and brings death with love and compassion. The story of how Mary copes with discovering her adoptive mother's unsettling secret occupation. Made me think of contemporary TV series "Mary Kills People"...
"Like you've thrown a plum and an orchard comes back at you. [...] These two completely different things, a note and a room, finding each other. [...] Do you think that's what we mean by love, Mr Evans? The note that comes back to you? That finds you even when you don't want to be found? That one day you find someone, and everything they are comes back to you in a strange way that hums? That fits. That's beautiful."
A detailed psychological analysis which reveals interior motivation and reasons for theft and its hidden meanings deriving from loss. The inner thief may be fueled by four types of behaviors: correcting an evil situation from the past, keeping or achieving power, feeling entitled to have what is stolen or avoiding to jump from teenage years to adult responsibilities.
This book cover is making me think of oranges and coffee. "Fire" is part of the unpublished diaries of Anais Nin, a passionate and lucid introspection and self-uncovery of the feminine nature, exploring the spirit and flesh with eroticism and fantasy. She practices psychoanalysis. Her relationship with famous writer Henry Miller stands out in her story.
On my nightstand at the moment. "The F-word: why it's so powerful, when to use it and how [...] The most powerful word in negotiations is "Fair"."
"At some point in their development, all negotiators have come to grips with "No". When you come to realize the real psychological dynamic behind it, you'll love the word."
It seems 20 books have been literally lost in translation (just 100 left instead of 120) 😄
