Book: Samuel Butler «Way of All Flesh»

Way of All Flesh

Серия: "Penguin English Library"

The greater part of every family is always odious; if there are one or two good ones in a very large family, it is as much as can be expected' Written with great humour, irony and honesty, "The Way of All Flesh" exploded perceptions of the Victorian middle-class family in its radical depiction of Ernest Pontifex, a young man who casts off his background and discovers himself. The awkward but likeable son of a tyrannical clergyman and a priggish mother, and destined to follow his father into the church, Ernest gleefully rejects his parents' respectability, and chooses instead to find his own way in the world.

Samuel Butler

Duda
Los más obstinados suelen ser los más equivocados, como todos los que no han aprendido a dudar.
Necedad
Si en el mundo no hubiera más tontos que pícaros, los pícaros no tendrían de quién aprovecharse para vivir.
Paz
Es preferible una paz injusta a una guerra justa.
Saber
Aunque la sabiduría no puede adquirirse con oro, menos todavía puede adquirirse sin él.
Vida
La vida es el arte de sacar conclusiones suficientes a partir de datos insuficientes.
