Island Gems

Stuck myself on an island for Khmer New Years with some great books and found these gems that I bought back to the mainland.


The Spirituality of Pilgrimages
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart. And try to love the question themselves”
Rainer Maria Rilke

“To ignore evil is to become an accomplice to it”
Martin Luther King Jr.

The Alchemist 
“My heart is afraid that it will have to suffer,” the boy told the alchemist one night as they looked up at the moonless sky.
“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity.”
Paula Coehlo

Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls
“For an American, though, Australia seems pretty familiar: same wide streets, same office towers. It’s Canada in a thong, or that’s the initial impression.”
David Sedaris

The Famished Road
“You are a mischievous one. You will cause no end of trouble. You have to travel many roads before you find the river of your destiny. This life of yours will be full of riddles. You will be protected and you will never be alone.”
Ben Okri
