100% the Story of a Patriot

By: Upton Sinclair

Now and then it occurs to one to reflect upon what slender threads of accident depend the most important circumstances of his life; to look back and shudder, realizing how close to the edge of nothingness his being has come. A young man is walking down the street, quite casually, with an empty mind and no set purpose; he comes to a crossing, and for no reason that he could tell he takes the right hand turn instead of the left; and so it happens that he encounters a blue-...

The Noble Koran (Quran) : The Table Spread

By: Transcribed by the Prophet Muhammad

Excerpt: O ye who believe! Profane not Allah?s monuments nor the Sacred Month nor the offerings nor the garlands, nor those repairing to the Sacred House, seeking the grace and pleasure of their Lord. But when ye have left the sacred territory, then go hunting (if ye will). And let not your hatred of a folk who (once) stopped your going to the inviolable place of worship seduce you to transgress; but help ye one another unto righteousness and pious duty. Help not one ano...

Immortals Crowned by the French Academy : A Woodland Queen, V1

By: Andre Theuriet

Excerpt: Chapter 1V. The DAWN OF LOVE Winter had come, and with it all the inclement accompaniments usual in this bleak and bitter mountainous country: icy rains, which, mingled with sleet, washed away whirlpools of withered leaves that the swollen streams tossed noisily into the ravines; sharp, cutting winds from the north, bleak frosts hardening the earth and vitrifying the cascades; abundant falls of snow, lasting sometimes an entire week. The roads had become impassa...

The Secret Sharer

By: Joseph Conrad

Excerpt: On my right hand there were lines of fishing stakes resembling a mysterious system of half?submerged bamboo fences, incomprehensible in its division of the domain of tropical fishes, and crazy of aspect as if abandoned forever by some nomad tribe of fishermen now gone to the other end of the ocean; for there was no sign of human habitation as far as the eye could reach. To the left a group of barren islets, suggesting ruins of stone walls, towers, and blockhouse...

In May 1849, the late Vice?Admiral Sir Charles Malcolm, formerly Superintendent of the Indian Navy, in conjunction with Mr. William John Hamilton, then President of the Royal Geographical Society of Great Britain, solicited the permission of the Court of Directors of the Honorable ...

The Lazy Tour of Two Idle Apprentices : No Thoroughfare ; The Peri...

By: Charles Dickens

Excerpt: Chapter One. In the autumn month of September, eighteen hundred and fifty?seven, wherein these presents bear date, two idle apprentices, exhausted by the long, hot summer, and the long, hot work it had brought with it, ran away from their employer. They were bound to a highly meritorious lady (named Literature), of fair credit and repute, though, it must be acknowledged, not quite so highly esteemed in the City as she might be. This is the more remarkable, as th...

The Anatomy of the Body of God

By: Frater Achad

PREFACE: Although the title of this short essay may seem, to some who have not read its contents, to be both presumptuous and unwarrantable, it is hoped that these will reserve their judgment until they have given due attention and consideration to the study of such an important subject. We are living in strange times. Civilization seems rapidly to be breaking up, while yet some inner urge is at work towards a better and more balanced construction in may departments of life.

The Tinker's Wedding

By: John M. Synge

Preface: The drama is made serious ? in the French sense of the word ? not by the degree in which it is taken up with problems that are serious in themselves, but by the degree in which it gives the nourishment, not very easy to define, on which our imaginations live. We should not go to the theatre as we go to a chemist?s, or a dram?shop, but as we go to a dinner, where the food we need is taken with pleasure and excitement. This was nearly always so in Spain and Englan...

By: Jules Claretie

Preface: Arsene Arnaud Claretie (commonly called Jules), was born on December 3, 1840, at Limoges, the picturesque and smiling capital of Limousin. He has been rightly called the ?Roi de la Chronique? and the ?Themistocle de la Litterature Contemporaine.? In fact, he has written, since early youth, romances, drama, history, novels, tales, chronicles, dramatic criticism, literary criticism, military correspondence, virtually everything! He was elected to the French Academy in 1888.

Lady Bridget in the Never-Never Land

By: Rosa Praed

Mrs Gildea had settled early to her morning's work in what she called the veranda-study of her cottage in Leichardt's Town. It was a primitive cottage of the old style, standing in a garden and built on the cliff—the Emu Point side—overlooking the broad Leichardt River. The veranda, quite twelve feet wide, ran— Australian fashion—along the front of the cottage, except for the two closed-in ends forming, one a bathroom and the other a kind of store closet. Being raised a ...

Suppliant Maidens and Other Plays

By: Aeschylus

Introduction: The surviving dramas of Aeschylus are seven in number, though he is believed to have written nearly a hundred during his life of sixty?nine years, from 525 B.C. to 456 B.C. That he fought at Marathon in 490, and at Salamis in 480 B.C. is a strongly accredited tradition, rendered almost certain by the vivid references to both battles in his play of The Persians, which was produced in 472. But his earliest extant play was, probably, not The Persians but The S...

Essays on Life, Art and Science

By: Samuel Butler

It is hardly necessary to apologise for the miscellaneous character of the following collection of essays. Samuel Butler was a man of such unusual versatility, and his interests were so many and so various that his literary remains were bound to cover a wide field. Nevertheless it will be found that several of the subjects to which he devoted much time and labour are not represented in these pages. I have not thought it necessary to reprint any of the numerous pamphlets ...

I don?t have a moment to lose. If in the next four days the time is short I discover that you have set foot in a cabaret, I?ll kick you out. I must have you all under my hand. And I?d better not find you in a condition such that you cannot take a step or say a word. Think th...
