{Quote} Seneca, Letter to Lucilius

“A multitude of books confuses the mind.
Accordingly, since you cannot read all the books which you may possess,
it is enough to possess only as many books as you can read.”

Seneca, Letter to Lucilius

Ethan Wate is haunted by dreams of a girl he’s never met. When Lena Duchannes moves into his small southern town of Gatlin County, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her.

It took me a while to get started with this book, but once a had there was no stopping me.
I fell in love with the main characters and even some of the minor ones too. Nothing ever seems to go Lena and Ethan way, or does it.
Will be reading to next book to continue on this journey with Ethan and Lena, and their forever changing world.

{Random} Cat’s Pajamas?

“This WordPress.com site is the cat’s pajamas”

The above quote is what appears in every new blogs tag line area in the settings, but does anyone know what it actually means. I decided to do some research to know what ‘the cat’s pajamas’ actually means.

I didn’t have to look very far; my own bookcase supplied me with the answer.

The below quote is taken from the book Spilling the beans on the cat’s pyjamas: popular expression – what they mean and where we got them by Judy Parkinson.

“This colloquialism first surfaced in America in the 1920s to describe something or someone superlatively good or top-notch, and has retained its meaning for almost a hundred years. Alternative sources suggest the phrase may come from an early nineteenth century English tailor E. B. Katz, who apparently made the finest silk pyjamas, though there is scant evidence to prove this is true”

Based to the above quote from the book and other research, WordPress is saying that every blog is extremely good no matter what you write about. At least there are some people out there that help people live their dreams.

Too many books; not enough shelves
