Jonathan and 56 other people liked Bill Kerwin's review of A Boy's Will:
A Boy's Will by Robert Frost
"
It is often unfair to judge a poet by his first book, and this is certainly true of Robert Frost's A Boy's Will (1913). The title, taken from a once-familiar refrain of Longfellow's (“A boy's will is the wind's will/ And the thoughts of youth are..." Read more of this review »

Daughters, he told himself, were God’s revenge on you for being a man: you lived in mortal fear that they might accidentally encounter somebody like—yourself at that age.

Prophets of Extremity by Allan Megill
"Concerned with what has “come to be called the ‘failure of the Enlightenment’” (3), this volume sees its four subjects as “as responding (at one remove) to the Enlightenment pretension to construct a science of society modeled on natural science”..." Read more of this review »

Hans Christian Andersen
“Where words fail, music speaks.”
Hans Christian Andersen

Leo Tolstoy
“The old oak, utterly transformed, draped in a tent of sappy dark green, basked faintly, undulating in the rays of the evening sun. Of the knotted fingers, the gnarled excrecenses, the aged grief and mistrust- nothing was to be seen. Through the rough, century-old bark, where there were no twigs, leaves had burst out so sappy, so young, that is was hard to believe that the aged creature had borne them. "Yes, that is the same tree," thought Prince Andrey, and all at once there came upon him an irrational, spring feeling of joy and renewal. All the best moments of his life rose to his memory at once. Austerlitz, with that lofty sky, and the dead, reproachful face of his wife, and Pierre on the ferry, and the girl, thrilled by the beauty of the night, and that night and that moon- it all rushed at once into his mind.”
Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

Leo Tolstoy
“A Frenchman's self-assurance stems from his belief that he is mentally and physically irresistibly fascinating to both men and women. An Englishman's self-assurance is founded on his being a citizen of the best organized state in the world and on the fact that, as an Englishman, he always knows what to do, and that whatever he does as an Englishman is unquestionably correct. An Italian is self-assured because he is excitable and easily forgets. A Russian is self-assured simply because he knows nothing and does not want to know anything, since he does not believe in the possibility of knowing anything fully.”
Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace

Tom Clancy
“A conscience is the price of morality, and morality is the price of civilization.”
Tom Clancy, Patriot Games
