    Hello folks,

    Write down the 4th Sentence on the 23rd page of the book beside your hand.

    I am the 1st one:

    The secrecy of the escapade, the walk through the night forest had been beautiful,out of the ordinary, exciting but not dangerous.

    "The work was going on." - The Heart of Darkness (Joseph Conrad)

    A bit of a boring sentence

    Sogar die Kriege sind bei den magischen Völkern von Riten begleitet, ohne die sie in Niederlagen enden würden oder zumindest wirkungslos blieben.

    (With magic peoples, even wars are accompanied by rites; without, they would be resulting in defeats, or were, at least, to no purpose.)

    Pushkin Eugene Onegin
    "The farther he goes the more good it does me. I don’t want philosophies, tracts, dogmas, creeds, ways out, truths, answers, nothing from the bargain basement. He is the most courageous, remorseless writer going and the more he grinds my nose in the sh1t the more I am grateful to him..."

    haha, great topic.

    Here goes:

    "Oh! oh! continua Corneille, comme ces gens sont en colère! Est-ce contre vous? est-ce contre moi?"

    ("Oh! oh! Cornelis went on, how angr are those people! Is it because of you? Is it because of me?")

    La Tulipe Noire/The Black Tulip, Alexandre Dumas
    One has to laugh before being happy, because otherwise one risks to die before having laughed.

    "Je crains [...] que l'âme ne se vide à ces passe-temps vains, et que le fin du fin ne soit la fin des fins." (Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac, Acte III, Scène VII)

    In many cases we do not know what the aboriginal stock was, and so could not tell whether or not nearly perfect reversion had ensued.

    If Gerald had been expecting courtroom drama he was to be disappointed, for both prosecution and defence knew the tribunal owed as much to political expediency as to due process of law, and the trials were a strangely muted affair with the accused listening abstractedly to arguments presented in a somewhat desultory way by the legal representatives.

    Kind, and gentle, and good to every one who knew "how to behave himself," and dealing to every man full justice - meeted by his own measure - he was liable even to generous acts, after being severe and having his own way.

    "Mary Annerley" - R D Blackmore

    .
    Voices mysterious far and near,
    Sound of the wind and sound of the sea,
    Are calling and whispering in my ear,
    Whifflingpin! Why stayest thou here?

    Naturally from the fruits of the hunt my lord was expected to tithe the priests of Hapi who were the titular shepherds of the goddess's flock of river-cows.

    Sorry you asked?

    This was the closest book. . .

    Sometimes, he says, he has "felt like the Wizard of Oz, behind the curtain, pulling all those levers."

    Conversations with The Dead by David Gans.
    Famous last words of hotel magnate Conrad Hilton "Leave the shower curtain in the tub."

    I'm not joking.

    This is a great idea for a thread. I love it!
