Works of Walter Savage Landor, Vol. 2 of 2 (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Works of Walter Savage Landor, Vol. 2 of 2 Sandt. Generally men of letters in our days, contrary to the practice of antiquity, are little fond of admitting the young and unlearned into their studies or their society. Kotzebue. They should rather those than others. The young must cease to be young, and the unlearned -may cease to be unlearned. According to the letters you bring with you, sir, there is only youth against you. In the seclusion of a college life, you appear to have studied with much assiduity and advantage, and to hare pursued no other courses than the paths of wisdom. Sandt. Do you approve of the pursuit? Kotzebue. Who does not? Sandt. None, if you will consent that they direct the chase, bag the game, inebriate some of the sportsmen, and leave the rest behind in the dough. May I ask you another question? Kotzebue. Certainly. Sandt. Where lie the paths of wisdom? I did not expect, my dear sir, to throw you back upon your chair. I hope it was no rudeness to seek information from you? Kotzebue. The paths of wisdom, young man, are those which lead us to truth and happiness. Sandt. If they lead us away from fortune, from employments, from civil and political utility; if they cast us where the powerful persecute, where the rich trample us down, and where the poorer (at seeing it) despise us, rejecting our counsel and spuming our consolation; what valuable truth do they enable us to discover, or what rational happiness to expect! To say that wisdom leads to truth, is only to say that wisdom leads to wisdom; for such is truth. Nonsense is better than falsehood; and we come to that. Kotzdxte. How? Sandt. No falsehood is more palpable than that wisdom leads to happiness; I mean in this world; in another we may well indeed believe that the words are constructed of very different materials. But here we are, standing on a barren molehill that crumbles and sinks under our tread; here VOL.a. we are, and show me from hence, Von Kotzebue, a discoverer who has not suffered for his discovery, whether it be of a world or of a truth, whether a Columbus or a Galileo. Let us come down lower. Show me a man who has detected the injustice of a law, the absurdity of a tenet, the malversation of a minister or the impiety of a priest, and who has not been stoned, or hanged, or burnt, or imprisoned, or exiled, or reduced to poverty. The chain of Prometheus is hanging yet upon his rock, and weaker limbs writhe daily in its rusty links. Who then, unless for others, would be a darer of wisdom? And yet, how full of it is even the inanimate world 1 We may gather it out of stones and straws. Much lies within the reach of all: little has been collected by the wisest of the wise.0 slaves to passion 1 0 minions to power! ye carry your own scourges about you; ye endure their tortures daily; yet ye crouch for more. Ye believe that God beholds you; ye know that he will punish you, even worse than ye punish yourselves; and still ye lick the dust where the Old Serpent went before you. Kotzebue. I am afraid, sir, you have formed to yourself a romantic and strange idea both of happiness and of wisdom. Sandt. I too am afraid it may be so. My idea of happiness is, the power of communicating peace, good-will, gentle affections, ease, comfort, independence, freedom, to all men capable of them. Kotzebue. The idea is, truly, no humble one. Sandt. A higher may descend more securely on a stronger mind. The power of communicating those blessings to the capable, is enough for my aspirations. A stronger mind may exercise its faculties in the divine work of creating the capacity. Kotzebue. Childish! childish! Men have cravings enow already; give them fre

Did your mother remind you to take off your coat when inside or you won't 'feel the benefit' when you leave? Have you ever been informed that what you need to cool down is a nice cup of tea? And are you bored of being told that you have to let that red wine breathe first to improve its taste? If so then 'Deceived Wisdom' is the book for you. Organised into easy-to-read standalone sections, it looks at the facts we all think we know and examines why we don't know them at all. David Bradley's clear and witty writing examines the science behind the statements to reveal the truth behind many popular myths. Entries include: - Why urinating on a jellyfish sting does not help (in fact it can make things worse and is at best rather embarrassing for the stingee) - Why recycling aluminium cans is not a waste of time - Why drinking diet cola will not make you blind - Why cats are not smarter than dogs - Why the 10,000 hour practice rule is not what it seems - Why your mobile phone won't give you cancer

The Christmas List. Der Weihnachtswunsch, englische Ausgabe Simon & Schuster UK

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A heartwarming and inspirational Christmas novel in the tradition of The Christmas Box, Grace, The Gift , and Finding Noel . The New York Times bestselling author of The Christmas Box and The Walk series returns with a holiday novel of hope, love, and redemption.§Dear Reader, §When I was in seventh grade, my English teacher, Mrs. Johnson, gave our class the intriguing (if somewhat macabre) assignment of writing our own obituaries. Oddly, I don't remember much of what I wrote about my life, but I do remember how I died: in first place on the final lap of the Daytona 500. At the time, I hadn't considered writing as an occupation, a field with a remarkably low on-the-job casualty rate. §What intrigues me most about Mrs. Johnson's assignment is the opportunity she gave us to confront our own legacy. How do we want to be remembered? That question has motivated our species since the beginning of time: from building pyramids to putting our names on skyscrapers. §As I began to write this book, I had two objectives: First, I wanted to explore what could happen if someone read their obituary before they died and saw, firsthand, what the world really thought of them. Their legacy. §Second, I wanted to write a Christmas story of true redemption. One of my family's holiday traditions is to see a local production of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol . I don't know how many times I've seen it (perhaps a dozen), but it still thrills me to see the change that comes over Ebenezer Scrooge as he transforms from a dull, tight-fisted miser into a penitent, "giddy-as-aschoolboy" man with love in his heart. I always leave the show with a smile on my face and a resolve to be a better person. That's what I wanted to share with you, my dear readers, this Christmas -- a holiday tale to warm your season, your homes, and your hearts. §Merry Christmas

"A daring and compulsively page-turning historical what-if fiction. . . A remarkably realistic alternative world story. . . Unapologetically opinionated, challenging, and thought provoking." -Publishers Weekly "I am simply blown away by the imagination and scholarship that has gone into Mitchell Freedman's fabulous novel, A Disturbance of Fate. Incredibly, Freedman pulls off this historical fantasy and tells a truly fascinating, though very controversial, tale." -Dan E. Moldea, author of The Killing of Robert F. Kennedy "A Disturbance of Fate is fun and imaginative. It presents a fascinating extrapolation from what we know about our history and reaffirms the importance of Robert F. Kennedy's legacy and vision." -Peter Edelman, author of Searching for America's Heart: RFK and the Renewal of Hope, and legislative assistant to Senator Robert F. Kennedy "A Disturbance of Fate is a powerful and creative work of social realism." -Dr. Kevin Starr, State Librarian of California and award-winning author of the series, Americans and The California Dream "Whether you agree with Mitch Freedman's political views or not, his book is an exciting and imaginative exercise in what could have been." -The late Alan W. Bock, senior editorial writer, Orange County Register and author of Waiting to Inhale: The Politics of Medical Marijuana Enter a history where Robert F. Kennedy was never killed, and where he went on to win the Presidency of the United States of America. Contrary to what some may believe, the time in which RFK survives is not tidy and perfect; it is not the utopia that many of his supporters have come to believe over the years. As in life, this daring alternate history twists and turns at the surprises and ironies along the way. Drawing from political, economic, and cultural trends to paint a realistic vision of what might have been, A Disturbance of Fate is guaranteed to leave you thinking about the fluidity of history. "[Freedman's] is a bold . . . look at a vital era, when many roads seemed possible." -Los Angeles Times Magazine "A Disturbance of Fate is more than a 'disturbance.' The book weaves a tale that transcends the end of an era...The portrayal of Robert Kennedy is at once, painful, yet undeniably picturesque." -The late Paul Conrad, three-time Pulitzer Prize winning political cartoonist for the Los Angeles Times "Mitchell Freedman's A Disturbance of Fate is a novel of marvels: offering readers a gripping political narrative, vividly realized in every detail, Freedman invites us to imagine an alternate universe whose origins lie in the epochal year of 1968 and whose fate is as strange and surprising as history itself." -Michael Berube, president-elect, Modern Language Association; Joseph Paterno Professor of Literature and Cultural Studies, Penn State University, and author of Higher Education Under Fire: Politics, Economics and the Crisis of the Humanities "...(A) radically different...(and) ambitious view of what would have happened had Robert Kennedy lived...It deals with...every domestic and foreign issue, and twenty-plus years of alternate American history following Robert Kennedy's election in 1968." -Jeff Greenfield, author of Then Everything Changed: Stunning Alternate Histories of American Politics: JFK, RFK, Carter, Ford, Reagan and distinguished political reporter for CBS News Mitchell J. Freedman has history and political science degrees from Rutgers University and a law degree from California Western School of Law. He has been published in newspapers and journals on historical, political, and constitutional issues. He lives with his wife and two children in Southern California.

I was my dad's vinyl-wallah: I changed his records while he lounged around drinking tea, and that's how I know my Argo from my Tempo. And it's why, when Dr Walid called me to the morgue to listen to a corpse, I recognised the tune it was playing. Something violently supernatural had happened to the victim, strong enough to leave its imprint like a wax cylinder recording. Cyrus Wilkinson, part-time jazz saxophonist and full-time accountant, had apparently dropped dead of a heart attack just after finishing a gig in a Soho jazz club. He wasn't the first. No one was going to let me exhume corpses to see if they were playing my tune, so it was back to old-fashioned legwork, starting in Soho, the heart of the scene. I didn't trust the lovely Simone, Cyrus' ex-lover, professional jazz kitten and as inviting as a Rubens' portrait, but I needed her help: there were monsters stalking Soho, creatures feeding off that special gift that separates the great musician from someone who can raise a decent tune. What they take is beauty. What they leave behind is sickness, failure and broken lives. And as I hunted them, my investigation got tangled up in another story: a brilliant trumpet player, Richard 'Lord' Grant - my father - who managed to destroy his own career, twice. That's the thing about policing: most of the time you're doing it to maintain public order. Occasionally you're doing it for justice. And maybe once in a career, you're doing it for revenge.

Adrian Mole's pen is scribbling for the twenty-first century. Working as a bookseller and living in Leicester's Rat Wharf; finding time to write letters of advice to Tim Henman and Tony Blair; locked in mortal combat with a vicious swan called Gielgud; measuring his expanding bald spot; and trying to escape the clutches of Marigold and win-over her voluptuous sister Daisy ... Adrian still yearns for a better more meaningful world. And he's not ready to surrender his pen yet ... Monday October 7th Rang my solicitor, David Barwell, on the way to work. His secretary, Angela, said, 'Mr Barwell is busy having an asthma attack due to the new carpet that has been fitted over the weekend.' I advised her to expect a correspondence from Mark B'astard regarding the lease on Unit 4, The Old Battery Factory, Rat Wharf, Grand Union Canal, Leicester. She said bitterly, 'I shan't bother telling Mr Barwell. It's me that does all the work. All he does is sit behind his desk and fiddle with his inhaler.' I had to wait ten minutes outside the shop; Mr Carlton-Hayes had trouble finding a parking space. I watched him walk up the High Street. He looked as if he was on his last legs. I don't know how much longer he can carry on with the shop. This is just my luck. He said, 'Terribly sorry to keep you waiting, my dear.' I took the keys from him and opened the door. Once inside, he leaned against the recent biographies to catch his breath. I said to him, 'If we had a few chairs and sofas in here like I suggested, you could sit down and be comfortable.' He said, 'We're not Habitat, Adrian, my dear, we're booksellers.' I said, 'Customers expect to be able to sit down in bookshops nowadays, and they also expect a cup of coffee and to be able to visit the lavatory.' He said, 'A properly brought-up person micturates and defecates and drinks a cup of coffee before they leave their house.' We had the usual quotient of mad people in during the day. A steam train enthusiast with a ginger beard and sellotaped spectacles asked me if we had a copy of the 1954 Trans-Siberian timetable in Russian. I showed him our Railway section and invited him to search through the mildewed railway ephemera that Mr Carlton-Hayes insists on keeping in stock.   A woman with a crew cut and dangly earrings asked if we were interested in buying a first edition of The Female Eunuch. I wouldn't have bought it. It was in very poor condition, missing its dust jacket, and the pages were covered in annotations and exclamation marks in red ink. But Mr Carlton-Hayes intervened and offered the woman
