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
