30 Day Book Challenge – #7 Book That You Can Quote/Recite

Well this one has come at an apt time as I have an exam tomorrow! So in theory, the two books I should be able to quote without even thinking would be Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr, Hyde’ and Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’ so all of the;

“Knit him closer than a wife.”

and the;

“Man is not truly one, but truly two.”

or;

“To influence someone is to give him one’s soul. He does not think his natural thoughts or burn with his natural passions. His virtues are not real to him. His sins, if there are such things as sins, are borrowed. He becomes an echo of someone else’s music, and actor of a part that has not been written for him.”

should be well and truly drummed in now!

    Oscar Wilde is one of my favorite authors, then again I have a soft spot in my heart for Victorian lit.

    Good luck on the exam! And if your looking for a particular Vonnegut book to read I’d suggest either Cat’s Cradle or Player Piano
