Those of you who have been reading my essays for a while now, the last ten years, have noticed, now and then, I talk about weight. My own. It has been a problem, often real, sometimes imagined, since I was a teen. And those of you who have been reading my essays, all eight of you, know I have met with success, (“Body Modification”) shown sustained effort, (“Einstein’s Bagels And Why They Appare...

Paperweight by Stephen Fry

I do not ever ever ever read vampire books. I don't like fantasy novels. And I don't like books that easily straddle YA and adult. And this book does all three. But I loved it!

Witty, engaging, intelligent, well-written mesh of fantasy and social sat

Thomas Hardy
“Remember that the best and greatest among mankind are those who do themselves no worldly good. Every successful man is more or less a selfish man. The devoted fail...”
Thomas Hardy, Jude the Obscure

T.H. White
“The best thing for being sad," replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.”
T.H. White, The Once and Future King

Stephen Fry
“If I had a large amount of money I should certainly found a hospital for those whose grip upon the world is so tenuous that they can be severely offended by words and phrases and yet remain all unoffended by the injustice, violence and oppression that howls daily about our ears.”
