“I remembered that the real world was wide, and that a varied field of hopes and fears, of sensations and excitements, awaited those who had the courage to go forth into it’s expanse, to seek real knowledge of life amidst its perils.”

Charlotte Brontë 

In honour of her 198th birthday!

“One summer morning at sunrise a long time ago
I met a little girl with a book under her arm.
I asked her why she was out so early and she answered that there were too many books and far too little time. And there she was absolutely right.” Tove Jansson

Debris? Oh you mean this debris? Yes, it’s making my shoes a bit dusty. Yes, yes, I hear the sirens - but BOOKS.

This was a letter Mr. Mark Twain posted on his front door after his house had been burglarized in 1908
I thought you’d like this, you seem to be a, erm, ‘Twainiac’, for lack of a better term.
