Inna Shpitzberg and 4 other people liked Daniel Wright's review of Meditations:
Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
"Lots of juicy quotes and sage advice, but I can't help thinking how derivative it is."
Ted Bundy by Stephen G. Michaud
"Precurser to O.J. Simpson's If I Did It, this book was a joke. Ted Bundy played these reporters like a violin.

Bundy spent most of his last months trying to get the authorities to delay his execution by claiming he could lead the authorities to ma..." Read more of this review »

George Gordon Byron
“Sorrow is knowledge: they who know the most must mourn the deepest o’er the fatal truth, the Tree of Knowledge is not that of Life.”
George Gordon Byron, Manfred: A Dramatic Poem

W. Somerset Maugham
“I have noticed that when I am most serious people are apt to laugh at me, and indeed when after a lapse of time I have read passages that I wrote from the fullness of my heart I have been tempted to laugh at myself. It must be that there is something naturally absurd in a sincere emotion, though why there should be I cannot imagine, unless it is that man, the ephemeral inhabitant of an insignificant planet, with all his pain and all his striving is but a jest in an eternal mind.”
W. Somerset Maugham, Cakes and Ale

W.H. Auden
“I’ll love you, dear, I’ll love you
Till China and Africa meet,
And the river jumps over the mountain
And the salmon sing in the street”
W.H. Auden

Ernest Hemingway
“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, many are strong at the broken places.”
Ernest Hemingway

W. Somerset Maugham
“I saw that Roy was not inclined to be amused. I was not annoyed, for I am quite used to people not being amused at my jokes. I often think that the purest type of the artist is the humorist who laughs alone at his own jests.”
W. Somerset Maugham, Cakes and Ale
