It is so easy to find "great quotes" all over the web, but rarely do we see great writing.
The Adventure of the Cardboard Box by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
Inspired by Lori's post, I've been reading some classics lately. It's lines like this that make me want to erase everything I've ever written. Great writers take you into their world in such a way that you squint at such descriptions. Well, if I have not been called to be a great writer, at least I can read the works of those who are.
For those of you who would love to read some classics but just can't find the time, Project Gutenberg has released many wonderful books (by Doyle, Shakespeare, Twain, Wells et al) in audio format. Download and enjoy!
