message 4: by Craig

Craig “The imagination is not a state: it is the human existence itself.”
― William Blake

message 3: by Craig

Craig “Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”
― J.R.R. Tolkien

message 2: by Craig

Craig Welcome to my small group of friends. Hopefully I'll get to know you better, but until then, and as the old Irish blessing goes, "may God hold you in the palm of His hand."

Zoha Thank you for accepting friendvite ....., looking forward to bookish charts !!! ;)
