Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia by The Gang
Rate this book
Clear rating
While there were a few laugh-out-loud moments and a decent background story, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's style of humor just doesn't translate to book form.

G.K. Chesterton
“Do not be proud of the fact that your grandmother was shocked at something which your are accustomed to seeing or hearing without being shocked. ... It may be that your grandmother was an extremely lively and vital animal and that you are a paralytic.”
G.K. Chesterton

Marcus Aurelius
“The best revenge is to be unlike him who performed the injury.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
“Love a man, even in his sin, for that love is a likeness of the divine love, and is the summit of love on earth.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Thomas Merton
“My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.”
Thomas Merton, Thoughts in Solitude

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I am in fact a Hobbit in all but size. I like gardens, trees, and unmechanized farmlands; I smoke a pipe, and like good plain food (unrefrigerated), but detest French cooking; I like, and even dare to wear in these dull days, ornamental waistcoats. I am fond of mushrooms (out of a field); have a very simple sense of humor (which even my appreciative critics find tiresome); I go to bed late and get up late (when possible). I do not travel much.”
J.R.R. Tolkien
