“Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.”
Groucho Marx, The Essential Groucho: Writings For By And About Groucho Marx

“How often do we tell our own life story? How often do we adjust, embellish, make sly cuts? And the longer life goes on, the fewer are those around to challenge our account, to remind us that our life is not our life, merely the story we have told about our life. Told to others, but—mainly—to ourselves.”
Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending

Shawn Woods Shawn Woods writes about his life as being labeled a mistake by his mother and how she displays her resentment for him in front of family and friend besides verbally abusing him throughout his life. Even to this day, she insults, degrades, and rejects him. Shawn went through school with learning disabilities and graduated from high school with a 6 to 8 grade in reading and spelling level. His book is written in his own words so you can see for yourself how he struggles with expressing his thoughts.
