Quote of the Day – The Dastardly Deed

Quote of the Day

Inquisitive and fun-loving Reader: if granted the opportunity to prowl a phantasmagorical underground palace, what would you do first? Would you play hide-and-seek in the armory? Frolic through the painting galleries? Plant your derriere on the throne and issue pretend decrees to invisible courtiers? Or, like Oliver Drybread, would you insist upon touring the castle kitchens?

Quote of the Day – Justin Case

Quote of the Day

When I came home, I found Qwerty whining in the front hall. He was sad because Mom started taking him to Obedience School today. She told me, right in front of Qwerty, that he is the worst dog in the whole class.

Quote of the Day – Winnie-the-Pooh

Quote of the Day

Christopher Robin was sitting outside his door, putting on his Big Boots. As soon as he saw the Big Boots, Pooh knew that an Adventure was going to happen, and he brushed the honey off his nose with the back of his paw, and spruced himself up as well as he could, so as to look Ready for Anything.

Quote of the Day – Justin Case

Quote of the Day

I wanted to be good at sports and very fast, so I said okay to the white-and-silver sporty sneakers. The rest of today whenever I looked down, I thought some other kid’s feet got stuck on the bottoms of my legs.

Quote of the Day – Liar & Spy

Quote of the Day

My name is Gorges, which is pronounced just like “George” because the S is silent, but of course some kids call me “Jor-Jess” or “Gorgeous.” I don’t much care. There are worst things to be called that Gorgeous, even for a boy.

Quote of the Day – The Wizard of Oz

Quote of the Day

“While Dorothy was looking earnestly into the queer, painted face of the Scarecrow, she was surprised to see one of the eyes slowly wink at her. She thought she must have been mistaken, at first, for none of the scarecrows in Kansas ever wink; but presently the figure nodded its head to her in a friendly way.”

–The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
