"Finished one of the 2 books in this set - which includes 2 novels and 3 short story collections with approx 36 short stories. I must say it was a TERRIFIC read!! Starting with a bias towards Sherlock Holmes, considering i am ardent adorer of Hercule Poirot, i must say the character of Holmes completely turned me around." Feb 25, 2012 06:28AM

Mark Twain
“I must have a prodigious amount of mind; it takes me as much as a week, sometimes, to make it up!”
Mark Twain

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

Frank Zappa
“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

Mark Twain
“′Classic′ - a book which people praise and don't read.”
Mark Twain

Elie Wiesel
“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”
