This is not, by any means, a very exhaustive history of France (it's not even 300 pages long, after all), but having traveled to the country recently I think it's given me some insights I would not have had otherwise. In that, this book was useful. I ...more

The Love Poems of Elizabeth And Robert Browning by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Rate this book
Clear rating
A nice, pleasant read. I think Robert Browning has a better grasp of composition (or, at least, the type of composition I prefer), but Elizabeth has more depth of feeling. I was looking for an excellent example of requited love, and I found it here.

Lemony Snicket
“The central theme of Anna Karenina," he said, "is that a rural life of moral simplicity, despite its monotony, is the preferable personal narrative to a daring life of impulsive passion, which only leads to tragedy."

"That is a very long theme," the scout said.

"It's a very long book," Klaus replied.

[...]

"Or maybe a daring life of impulsive passion leads to something else," the scout said, and in some cases this mysterious person was right. A daring life of impulsive passion is an expression which refers to people who follow what is in their hearts, and like people who prefer to follow their head, or follow a mysterious man in a dark blue raincoat, people who lead a daring life of impulsive passion end up doing all sorts of things.”
Lemony Snicket, The Slippery Slope

Douglas Adams
“I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.”
Douglas Adams, The Salmon of Doubt

Vikram Seth
“God save us from people who mean well.”
Vikram Seth, A Suitable Boy

Sylvia Plath
“Out of the ash
I rise with my red hair
and I eat men like air.”
