Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Alexander McCall Smith

Alexander McCall Smith, Friends, Lovers, Chocolate

Charlotte Brontë
“If all the world hated you and believed you wicked, while your own conscience approved of you and absolved you from guilt, you would not be without friends.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
