"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." - Oscar Wilde
"Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean." - Maya Angelou
I could never finish "Moby Dick" or "Billy Budd." Perhaps I just hate Herman Melville's style of writing? The first time I tried to read "Wuthering Heights" I gave up...but then, I was 12. I read it (all of it) when I was in my 20's and it finally made sense.
