About fezabel

I read a lot and read every genre - from fantasy & sci-fi to nonfiction, mystery, romance or bestsellers. I have lots of opinions and will share them whether you like it or not. To pay for all of my books, I'm a college chemistry professor & grad student. I also have two cats & no life. It's all good.

    The last thing we want to admit is that the bickering of the playground perfectly presages the machinations of the boardroom, that our social hierarchies are merely an extension of who got picked first for the kickball team, and that grown-ups still get divided into bullies and fatties and crybabies.
    Note: It all degenerates into grade school on the playground.
  • fezabel shared from The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
    life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love.
    Note: Yes, this.
