Grimm's Fairy Tales by Jacob Grimm
" Kinder- und Hausmärchen first came out in 1812 and was expanded in subsequent editions. The collection was made, in part, from actual interviews with ordinary persons, "Old Marie", the Grimm's housekeeper, being the source of almost a quarter of t... " Read more of this review »
Grimms' Fairy Tales by Jacob Grimm
" I couldn't find the edition I had so I went with one that was closest in date.

Why only 4 stars for the tails we all remember "fondly" from childhood? Think about it. These are "Grimm's" fairy tales and they certainly are "grim". Still there are ta... " Read more of this review »

Dr. Seuss
“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”
Dr. Seuss

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Marcus Tullius Cicero
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Frank Herbert
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune

J.R.R. Tolkien
“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
