Blast from the Past: A Wrinkle in Time

January 1, 2006
I already knew I liked this book, having read it twice before. But I never really understood some of the physics involved. But I think I get it. I still don’t understand how you call up the wrinkle, but maybe I just think it must be magic to call it up and physics to finish after you’ve begun. (I have #2 and #4 of the series so I plan on continuing, hopefully buying #3 sometime.) {My now mother-in-law had bought the three books for me for Christmas, not realizing she missed one in the middle}

“The heart has its reasons, whereof reason knows nothing.” ~Pascal

“Nothing deters a good man from doing what is honorable.” ~Seneca proverb

“‘Do you think things always have an explanation?’
‘Yes, I believe that they do. But I think that with our human limitation we’re not always able to understand the explanations. But you see, just because we don’t understand doesn’t mean that the explanation doesn’t exist.'”

“People are more than just the way they look.”

“An old ass knows more than a young colt.” ~A Perez

“Nothing is hopeless; we must hope for everything.” ~Euripedes

“Experience is the mother of knowledge.” ~Cervantes

“How small is the earth to him who looks from heaven.” ~Delille

“I do not know everything; still many things I understand.” ~Goethe

“Things which are seen are temporal. But the things which are not seen are eternal.”

“What we can give you now is nothing you can touch with your hands. I give you my love. Never forget that. My love always.”

Blast from the Past is a weekly post I write that focuses on a book I read long before I ever had a blog about books. While I didn’t “book blog” until a couple of years ago, I’ve kept a reading journal of sorts for about 6 years. Blast from the Past is essentially just my way of digitalizing my old book journals–and reminding me what I thought of books long since read. I think it will be a fun way to look at how my reading selections have changed and what I like most in the books I read.
