“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” --Mark Twain It’s telling that Mark Twain chose sailing as a metaphor for living life to the fullest. Throughout history, humankind has been going to sea in boats and ships—for the purposes of trade, exploration, transport, fishing, and pure enjoyment. The Little Red Book of Sailing Wisdom contains some of the most moving, perceptive, witty, and inspirational words ever spoken or written about the sea-faring life. Novelists, politicians, explorers, playwrights, poets, musicians, and celebrities weigh in on life upon the water, under sail. These are just some of the folks whose words appear in these pages: •Daniel Defoe •Ted Kennedy •Charles Dickens •Franklin Roosevelt •Herman Melville •Dennis Connor •Patrick O’Brian •Larry Ellison •Eugene O’Neill •Thor Heyerdahl •Jack London •Isak Dinesen •William F. Buckley •And dozens of others!

Andrew Lang's Fairy Books or Andrew Lang's "Coloured" Fairy Books constitute a twelve-book series of fairy tale collections. Although Andrew Lang did not collect the stories himself from the oral tradition, the extent of his sources, who had collected them originally (with the notable exception of Madame d'Aulnoy), made them an immensely influential collection, especially as he used foreign-language sources, giving many of these tales their first appearance in English. As acknowledged in the prefaces, although Lang himself made most of the selections, his wife and other translators did a large portion of the translating and telling of the actual stories. The Blue Fairy Book assembled a wide range of tales, with seven from the Brothers Grimm, five from Madame d'Aulnoy, three from the Arabian Nights, and four Norse stories, among other sources.
