The Three Musketeers

By: Pere Alexandre Dumas

Preface: In which it is proved that, notwithstanding their names? ending in OS and IS, the heroes of the story which we are about to have the honor to relate to our readers have nothing mythological about them. A short time ago, while making researches in the Royal Library for my History of Louis XIV, I stumbled by chance upon the Memoirs of M. d'Artagnan, printed as were most of the works of that period, in which authors could not tell the truth without the risk of a re...

The Bottle Imp

By: Robert Louis Stevenson

Excerpt: There was a man of the Island of Hawaii, whom I shall call Keawe; for the truth is, he still lives, and his name must be kept secret; but the place of his birth was not far from Honaunau, where the bones of Keawe the Great lie hidden in a cave. This man was poor, brave, and active; he could read and write like a schoolmaster; he was a first?rate mariner besides, sailed for some time in the island steamers, and steered a whaleboat on the Hamakua coast. At length ...

The History of Don Quixote, By Cervantes, Iv5History of Don Quixot...

By: Miguel De Cervantes

Excerpt: To serve my need of fitting utterance. And as I strive to body forth the tale Of all I suffer, all that thou hast done, Forth shall the dread voice roll, and bear along Shreds from my vitals torn for greater pain. Then listen, not to dulcet harmony, But to a discord wrung by mad despair Out of this bosom?s depths of bitterness, To ease my heart and plant a sting in thine. The lion?s roar, the fierce wolf?s savage howl, The horrid hissing of the scaly snake, The ...

The Jewel of Seven Stars

By: Bram Stoker

Excerpt: Chapter 1. A Summons in the Night. IT ALL SEEMED SO REAL THAT I COULD HARDLY IMAGINE that it had ever occurred before; and yet each episode came, not as a fresh step in the logic of things, but as something expected. It is in such wise that memory plays its pranks for good or ill; for pleasure or pain; for weal or woe. It is thus that life is bitter?sweet, and that which has been done becomes eternal. Again, the light skiff, ceasing to shoot through the lazy wat...

An Outcast of the Islands

By: Joseph Conrad

Excerpt: AUTHOR?S NOTE. ?An Outcast of the Islands? is my second novel in the absolute sense of the word; second in conception, second in execution, second as it were in its essence. There was no hesitation, half?formed plan, vague idea, or the vaguest reverie of anything else between it and ?Almayer?s Folly.? The only doubt I suffered from, after the publication of ?Almayer?s Folly,? was whether I should write another line for print. Those days, now grown so dim, had th...

Narcissism Book of Quotes

By: Sam Vaknin

The narcissist inflicts pain and abuse on others. He devalues sources of supply, callously and off-handedly abandons them, and discards people, places, partnerships, and friendships unhesitatingly. Sudden shifts between sadism and altruism, abuse and ?love?, ignoring and caring, abandoning and clinging, viciousness and remorse, the harsh and the tender - are, perhaps, the most difficult to comprehend and to accept. These swings produce in people around the narcissist emo...

A Dog of Flanders

By: Maria Louise Rame Ouida

Excerpt: They were friends in a friendship closer than brotherhood. Nello was a little Ardennois. Patrasche was a big Fleming. They were both of the same age by length of years, yet one was still young, and the other was already old. They had dwelt together almost all their days: both were orphaned and destitute, and owed their lives to the same hand. It had been the beginning of the tie between them, their first bond of sympathy; and it had strengthened day by day, and ...
