"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

  1. Poetry appeals to my senses. It throws up thoughts & images.

  2. I enjoy many aspects of poetry. Not the least of which is how, with just a few words, we can be in another world entirely. Thanks for the giveaway.

  3. I love the thoughtfulness that goes into each word in poetry; every single word carries so much meaning. One of my favorite poets is Seamus Heaney. :)


Thanks so much for stopping by; I love to hear from you!

Happy reading!!!!
