Do novels count? Because if so, "The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas", awesome, it made me somewhat sad.

And on Shakespeare, Hamlet. That is all. (EVERYONE DIES BUT HORATIO! WHEEE!)

You actually felt the strange emotion of sadness? I had no idea you were capable of such things

So I read Stephen King instead.


I adore Shakespeare, but haven't had the pleasure reading one of his greatest works of art, according to this forum. I come to have a liking toward his works from little information I know of, though. Smile That should say a lot about him. Like Avalanche here, it's hard to obtain any works of his from where I am bound. So, like him... I am only given the option of reading books from such authors like Stephen King. Mad Which is not all bad, but I wish my little town would have more.

Twilight is a terrible book and Stephanie Meyer is a terrible writer. On the other hand, I've read 2 or 3 Stephen King books and they are much past the level of Twilight

It could be worse. We could compare the works of Edgar Allen Poe along with Twlight. Razz

Ah, I see. What about the comparing the works of Mark Twain into this subject here?



"A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval."

"A man is never more truthful than when he acknowledges himself a liar."

"A man's character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation."

"A person with a new idea is a crank until the idea succeeds."

"Action speaks louder than words but not nearly as often."

"All generalizations are false, including this one."

"All you need is ignorance and confidence and the success is sure."

"Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured."

"Any emotion, if it is sincere, is involuntary."

"Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint." lol!

"Always do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest."

"Part with your illusions. Because when they are gone, you may still exist, but you have ceased to live."

"Education consists mainly of what we have unlearned."

"Everything has its limit - iron ore cannot be educated into gold".

"Everything human is pathetic. The secret source of humor itself is not joy but sorrow. There is no humor in heaven."

"Facts are stubborn, but statistics are more pliable."

"Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please."

"I was gratified to be able to answer promptly, and I did. I said I didn't know."

"If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."

"It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them."

And the most famous one.... "It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt. "

All quotes by Mark Twain. Sorry that there is so many of them, but I couldn't decide. Razz For more of them, click the link below.

I'm a theatre fangirl, myself.

(Damn you Snake, I have the overwhelming urge to listen to the Assassins soundtrack now...)

I was in a production of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar not too long ago. Not my favorite of his plays (that would be Macbeth) but it was so much fun....
