Quote: 14th October 2017

“Wandering spirits, if indeed ye wander, and do not rest in your narrow beds, allow me this faint happiness, or take me, as your companion, away from the joys of life.”

~ Frankenstein, Mary Shelley, pg 101


Quote: 13th October 2017

We rest; a dream had power to poison sleep.

We rise; one wand’ring thought pollutes the day.

We feel, conceive, or reason; laugh or weep,

Embrace fond foe, or cast our cares away;

It is the same: for, be it joy or sorrow,

The path of its departure still is free.

Man’s yesterday may ne’er be like his morrow;

Naught may endure but mutability!

~ Frankenstein, Mary Shelley, pg 101

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

“To represent a bad thing in its least offensive light, is doubtless the most agreeable course for a writer of fiction to pursue; but is it the most honest, or the safest?” ~ Anne Brontë, Preface, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.
