"This book is better than the other one I'm reading for class, but I question its assignment for this course. As a book for Christians, it discusses how Jesus related as a human to certain topics we also relate to such as authority, money, parents, etc. The author is a little off base in some ways but doesn't seem to be an outright heretic."

"So far the authors reject the actual historicity of the Bible. They only state what the Bible is about in extremely vague terms, about restoring God's relationship with man- which it IS, but they're beating way around the bush to avoid discussing sin. The reason for the need of blood sacrifice, for example, is not even touched. To the authors, sin is just an abstract force in the world, like a pollutant." Oct 13, 2018 08:26PM

Loved this as a kid; couldn't remember the title of it and lost it for years, finally found it again as a teenager and read it to see if it was as good as I remembered. It was still pretty good. This book is what introduced me to the concept of a men ...more

Oscar Wilde
“She sang of the Love that is perfected by death, of the Love that dies not in the tomb.”
Oscar Wilde, The Happy Prince and Other Tales

Roald Dahl
“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”
Roald Dahl, The Twits

Oscar Wilde
“Death is a great price to pay for a red rose,” cried the Nightingale, “and Life is very dear to all.  It is pleasant to sit in the green wood, and to watch the Sun in his chariot of gold, and the Moon in her chariot of pearl.  Sweet is the scent of the hawthorn, and sweet are the bluebells that hide in the valley, and the heather that blows on the hill.  Yet Love is better than Life, and what is the heart of a bird compared to the heart of a man?”
Oscar Wilde, The Happy Prince and Other Tales

Margery Williams Bianco
“Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'

'Does it hurt?' asked the Rabbit.

'Sometimes,' said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. 'When you are Real you don't mind being hurt.'

'Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,' he asked, 'or bit by bit?'

'It doesn't happen all at once,' said the Skin Horse. 'You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.”
Margery Williams Bianco, The Velveteen Rabbit

Charlotte Brontë
“If I spoke all I think on this point, if I gave my real opinion of some first-rate female characters in first-rate works, where should I be? Dead under a cairn of avenging stones in half an hour.”
Charlotte Brontë, Shirley
