Book Blogger Hop - May 1st - May 7th: Transfers Under 26 U.S.C. § 351 Are a Primary Means of Transferring Property to Businesses

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: Quote your favorite author!

Some Ursula K. Le Guin quotes:

"Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all the time, made new." - from The Lathe of Heaven.

"We read books to find out who we are. What other people, real or imaginary, do and think and feel – or have done and thought and felt; or might do and think and feel - is an essential guide to our understanding of what we ourselves are and may become. A person who had never listened to nor read a tale or myth or parable or story, would remain ignorant of his own emotional and spiritual heights and depths, would not know quite fully what it is to be human. For the story – from Rumpelstiltskin to War and Peace - is one of the basic tools invented by the mind of man, for the purpose of gaining understanding. There have been great societies that did not use the wheel, but there have been no societies that did not tell stories."

"To light a candle is to cast a shadow" from A Wizard of Earthsea

"You cannot buy the revolution. You cannot make the revolution. You can only be the revolution. It is in your spirit, or it is nowhere." from The Dispossessed

"To learn which questions are unanswerable, and not to answer them: this skill is most needful in times of stress and darkness." from The Left Hand of Darkness

"The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty: not knowing what comes next." from The Left Hand of Darkness

"I am living in a nightmare, from which from time to time I wake in sleep."

"The law of evolution is that the strongest survives!' 'Yes, and the strongest, in the existence of any social species, are those who are most social. In human terms, most ethical . . . There is no strength to be gained from hurting one another. Only weakness."
