Yeah. Like justice or science, but why childish...

W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965)


Yeah. Align heart and mind – and then do something worthwhile. That’s it in a nutshell.

Henry James (1843-1916)


Yeah. He is busy all day long, therefore less-qualified works did some other guys. Even the less-qualified works trickle down to us and we do it in a DIY manner... It’s my version of events. Enjoy!

E. M. Forster (1879-1970)

Jerome K. Jerome (1859-1927)


Yeah. Love wasn't meant to last. So it’s a pure miracle when it does - at least for some, sometimes... I have to take off my hat, guys. Gladly, of course!

Washington Irving (1783-1859)


Yeah. Though I am truly fascinated by these marvelous rays, I don’t understand how this wonderboy get itself into those clouds...

Henry Fielding (1707-1754)


Yeah. Chiefly derived, but sometimes derided... Who cares? Yes?
