Things that make you go hmm!

“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”- George Orwell, Animal Farm

Good advice for the dating world of today even. Who wants to date a man with no ambition, no money to court you, and no future? Hmm, said no one.

“It is a truth universally that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.” —Pride and Prejudice

Universal advice we’ve all heard but did we take it in and use it to our own circumstances at the time?

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” —A Tale of Two Cities

Advice from Seussville

The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go. -I Can Read With My Eyes Shut by Dr. Seuss 

Dr. Seuss always, ALWAYS gives us advice to use curiously so. And oh, the places you will go.

 

There are so many things you can learn about, but
You’ll miss the best things if you keep your eyes shut.

Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut

More Tolkien advice for life

“Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.”

—J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

For many of us, our first chapter book advice came from a spider and a pig!

“‘Why did you do all this for me?’ he asked. ‘I don’t deserve it. I’ve never done anything for you.’ ‘You have been my friend,’ replied Charlotte. ‘That in itself is a tremendous thing.'”

Wilbur and Charlotte, our most beloved first reads into what friendship is all about!!!

-E.B. White, Charlotte’s Web
