Look what I found in the TeeFury gallery. A tee that fans of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings are sure to love.
I’ve ordered from this company and been pleased with the merchandise. The only thing to watch for is the sizing on the women’s shirts. Read the size chart before you order.

He lives, then, on ginger-nuts, thought I; never eats a dinner, properly speaking; he must be a vegetarian then; but no; he never eats even vegetables, he eats nothing but ginger-nuts. My mind then ran on in reveries concerning the probable effects upon the human constitution of living entirely on ginger-nuts. ~ Bartleby, the Scrivener by Herman Melville
I have never understood this quote. If this makes sense to anyone please explain it to me.
I just found this at Amazon and I’m pretty excited about it. The Anthony Trollope Collection by the BBC is a 6-DVD set. The set contains The Barchester Chronicles (an adaptation of the first two Barchester novels, The Warden and Barchester Towers), He Knew He Was Right and The Way We Live Now. I only wish I already had ordered this. It would be perfect for a lazy, Sunday afternoon.
“Circumstantial evidence,” continued the young man, as if he scarcely heard Lady Audley’s interruption-“that wonderful fabric which is built out of straws collected at every point of the compass, and which is yet strong enough to hang a man.” ~ Lady Audley’s Secret by Mary Elizabeth Braddon
His love of danger, his intense appreciation of the drama of an adventure–all the more intense for being held tightly in–his consistent view that every peril in life is a form of sport, a fierce game betwixt you and Fate, with Death as a forfeit, made him a wonderful companion at such hours. ~ The Lost World by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

So is man’s heart. The desire to perform a work which will endure, which will survive him, is the origin of his superiority over all other living creatures here below. It is this which has established his dominion, and this it is which justifies it, over all the world. ~ The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne
What is it that sometimes speaks in the soul so calmly, so clearly, that its earthly time is short? Is it the secret instinct of decaying nature, or the soul’s impulsive throb, as immortality draws on? Be it what it may, it rested in the heart of Eva, a calm, sweet, prophetic certainty that Heaven was near; calm as the light of sunset, sweet as the bright stillness of autumn, there her little heart reposed, only troubled by sorrow for those who loved her so dearly. ~ Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe

“So much has religion done for me; turning the original materials to the best account; pruning and training nature. But she could not eradicate nature: nor will it be eradicated ’till this mortal shall put on immortality.” ~ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
He lived alone, and, so to speak, outside of every social relation; and as he knew that in this world account must be taken of friction, and that friction retards, he never rubbed against anybody. ~ Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne
There are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely – or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands. ~ Lady Windermere’s Fan by Oscar Wilde
