What are we getting out of fucking being here? Nothing. — David Finkel

The Lonely Soldier is an important book, a crucial accounting of the shameful war on women who gave their bodies, lives and souls for their country. — Eve Ensler

When my grandmother died she left a library full of books she never finished reading. This is how I feel now. — Jason Christopher Hartley
