Tips for Living | Renee Shafransky

Despite reading quite a few harsh, mostly negative, reviews on the plot, the protagonist, and if the book was even worth finishing, I decided to keep reading on and *surprise* I liked it.

I guess my point is: fuck reviews i.e. don‘t always take what other people think too seriously //remember that you have an opinion of your own to form. #tipsforliving

“ That is what I want in death: to disappear.”

....swarms of vultures devoured a body down to its skeleton in minutes.

*Note to self: Parsi religion, Zoroastrianism, and India‘s vulture population.

Eternal soul illustration inspiration brought forth by the taboo subject (well, relatively taboo in American culture) of the unavoidable demise of one‘s physical being.

...people are [more often than not] ignorant of the things that affect their actions, yet they rarely feel ignorant. We need to accept our ignorance and say 'I don't know‘ more often.

The black world of blindness was a refuge; better to be there than to see with strange shamed eyes the old world that had been so bright.

Slowly making my way through this “storybook”. I only regret not reading about Odysseus‘ adventures sooner - on to Aeneas, son of Venus, true founder of Rome~

Once awake from this strange vision which had come at dawn, the time when true dreams oftenest visit mortals, Europa decided not to try to go to sleep again, but to summon her companions, girls born in the same year as herself and all of noble birth, to go out with her to the lovely blooming meadows near the sea.
