About my libraryFrom recent readings...

"Nothing can so distinguish a man as a death sentence, thought Mathilde, it's the only thing one can't buy."
The Red and the Black, Stendhal

"...his family affection is really of a very high order. When his maternal grandmother died he didn’t go as far as to give up bridge altogether, but he declared on nothing but black suits for the next three months. That, I think, was really beautiful."
Reginald in Russia, Saki

"First look left and then look right, son, to see if a car's coming. That's important when you're crossing a street but it's a dangerous way to think."
The Appointment, Herta Muller

"She had bought herself a typewriter, but it was obvious that as yet she had not much practice...How typical it was of her gentleness, and perhaps even of her sense of defeat, that she not troubled to correct her errors."
Travels With My Aunt, Graham Greene
