Dear me

This is the book that I’ve read and changed my views on life, especially in not taking yourself too serious.

Some marvelous quotes from the book

"I do not believe that friends are necessarily the people you like best, they are merely the people who got there first."

"Parents are the bones on which children sharpen their teeth."

"Once we are destined to live our lives in the prison of our mind, our one duty is to furnish it well."



Yes, furnishing your mind well is important. I like all his quotes. I've never heard of this book but I like Ustinov very much.

@Belle - he was a great personality!

Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them all!


"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
