IMG_1439The second edition of the Illustrated Omar Khayyam is available. No change in the contents nor in the quality. Only that I cut out Amazon.USA whom I found the worst specimens (whom I qualify as literary ghouls). They were selling my book for $71.71 and were denying my royalities.

This second edition is priced 35 Euro. (equiv. dollar) at marked down price. Those who are interested may check outcheck out: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/bennymkje

Les Misérables Quotes

He never went out without a book under his arm, and he often came back with two.”

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.”

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

The power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories, that it has come to be disbelieved in. Few people dare now to say that two beings have fallen in love because they have looked at each other. Yet it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only.”

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Laughter is sunshine, it chases winter from the human face.”

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

To love or have loved, that is enough. Ask nothing further. There is no other pearl to be found in the dark folds of life.”

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Those who do not weep, do not see.”

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

“And by the way, Monsieur Marius, I believe that I was a little bit in love with you.”

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

If I speak, I am condemned.

If I stay silent, I am damned!”

Victor Hugo, Les Misérables (ack: Goodreads-quotes/image-lisa abramson-pinterest))
