"...how hard it was for any man to change what life had made him, but at least it was possible if one had the determination, willpower, and time."


By Dean Koontz


"Is this not what he wanted? His mother has relinquished him, given him to the world of which he's longed to be a part. And yet he feels a spike of fear: the filter has been taken off the lens, the safety net ripped from beneath his feet, and he is dizzy with dreadful independence."

"For the train, like life, must go on until it reaches its destination. You might not always like what you see out of the window, but if you pull down the blind, you will miss the beauty as well as the ugliness."

Reading stories can be very healing and that is the purpose of this special page.

Reading RX offers a selection of quotations straight out of some of the books I have read. I believe when you read a story, all your experiences come into play and contribute to how the story is interpreted. Reading also allows the reader to gain new experiences and perceptions that enables growth and healing. 

Many meaningful quotations are hidden within the stories we enjoy. I have found some quotations that I hope will be meaningful to you.

Please visit often, as new quotations from a variety of genres will appear periodically for your READING RX!


"That's what parenthood was about, wasn't it? Slowly understanding your child less and less until she wasn't yours anymore but herself."
