“Oh, men don‘t matter.  With women it is different.  We‘re good.  Some of us are, at least.  But we are positively getting elbowed into the corner.  Our husbands would really forget our existence if we didn‘t nag at them from time to time, just to remind them that we have a perfect legal right to do so.”

Excerpt From: OSCAR, WILDE.

"Let me tell you something: from then until I left that prison, in every free moment I had, if I was not reading In the library, I was reading in my bunk. You couldn't have gotten me out of books with a wedge... In fact, up to then, I never had been so truly free in my life." Malcolm X

PennCage I just found out about that article about him a couple weeks ago! So inspiring! Anything else i should check out from him? @paradise_found92 3y
paradise_found92 @PennCage Yes! His book of essays Consider the Lobster is wonderful too! Some of the references are a little dated, but his thought processes and concepts are pure gold. 3y
PennCage @paradise_found92 .. i got most of his work after I replied to the comment.. haha 😅I got that one too! 'Consider the lobster' but I started out with 'the broom of the system' .. ill make sure i read that one right after though! 👍😊 3y

"If I have learned anything in my time traveling the world, it is the power of hope. The power of one person—Washington, Lincoln, King, Mandela and even a young girl from Pakistan—Malala—one person can change the world by giving people hope."

Ah nostalgia, my sweet friend! This is the series that made me fall in love with reading back in high school! Also, those were the same days I used to skip school to go read at the library. Haha. #DownMemoryLane #StayInSchoolKids #BadDecisions #StoneBarringtonSeries #StuartWoods
