Mahatma Ghandi * Albert Einstein * Oscar Wilde
Marilyn Monroe * Mae West * Dr. Seuss * Frank Zappa * Cicero * Plato

1) “So many books, so little time.”

2) “Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”

3) “I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.”

4)“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”

5) “A room without books is like a body without a soul.”

Here are the answers: (view spoiler)

Michelle (lonelydoll21) | 84 comments My bad!! Sheesh - Sunday morning fogginess is my excuse. Here's the Dr. Seuss quote I have:

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you'll go." ~ Dr. Seuss

Here's another great one:

"There's something sad about an unread book." Thomas Hardy
