Fans of the BBC’s Sherlock are sure to enjoy today’s I Believe shirt at TeeFury.  FYI, 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.

Diogenes Club Shirts, Bags and More

The Diogenes Club
Check out the new Diogenes Club design at our gift shop.  You can find the design on shirts, note cards, bags and more.

“There are many men in London, you know, who, some from shyness, some from misanthropy, have no wish for the company of their fellows. Yet they are not averse to comfortable chairs and the latest periodicals. It is for the convenience of these that the Diogenes Club was started, and it now contains the most unsociable and unclubable men in town. No member is permitted to take the least notice of any other one. Save in the Stranger’s Room, no talking is, under any circumstances, allowed, and three offences, if brought to the notice of the committee, render the talker liable to expulsion. My brother was one of the founders, and I have myself found it a very soothing atmosphere.”

— The Greek Interpreter

Did you remember to turn your clocks back this morning?   To mark our return to standard time, here are five quotes about time from literature.

For the first time she was vaguely perceiving that life is everlasting movement. ~ Alice Adams by Booth Tarkington

Time will explain. ~ Persuasion by Jane Austen

Passion takes no count of time; peril marks no hours or minutes; wrong makes its own calendar; and misery has solar systems peculiar to itself. ~ The True Story of Guenever by Elizabeth Stuart Phelps

“My advice is, never do tomorrow what you can do today. Procrastination is the thief of time.” ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens

She had lived solely for the little things of life—the things that pass—forgetting the great things that go onward into eternity, bridging the gulf between the two lives and making of death a mere passing from one dwelling to the other—from twilight to unclouded day. ~ Anne of the Island by Lucy Maud Montgomery

Happy Halloween!

2013HalloweenLG
I hope you all have a fun and spooky Halloween.  Here are some of my favorite scary quotes in honour of the day . . . .

“Never walk near the bed; to a ghost your ankle is your most vulnerable part–once in bed, you’re safe; he may lie around under the bed all night, but you’re safe as daylight. If you still have doubts pull the blanket over your head.” ~ This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald

All things pass. Only remain cosmic force and matter, ever in flux, ever acting and reacting and realizing the eternal types—the priest, the soldier, and the king. Out of the mouths of babes comes the wisdom of all the ages. Some will fight, some will rule, some will pray; and all the rest will toil and suffer sore while on their bleeding carcasses is reared again, and yet again, without end, the amazing beauty and surpassing wonder of the civilized state. ~ The Scarlet Plague by Jack London

‘Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn, and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
 ~ Hamlet, Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare

One disagreeable result of whispering is that it seems to evoke an atmosphere of silence, haunted by the ghosts of sound-strange cracks and tickings, the rustling of garments that have no substance in them, and the tread of dreadful feet that would leave no mark on the sea-sand or the winter snow. ~ Bleak House by Charles Dickens

It used to puzzle him that, after dark, someone would look in round the edge of the bedroom door, and withdraw again too rapidly for him to see the face. ~ The Other Wing by Algernon Blackwood
