Ok in a status list ten books that have stayed with you in some sort of way. There are no right or wrong answers. Then ask ten of your friends to do the same and see what their books are! I usually don't do these but I have tagged some people I that I would really like to see their lists: My books are: 1. The Bible 2. The Count of Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas, père 3. America's Godly Heritage - David Barton/WallBuilders 4. The Autobiography of Julia Ward Howe 5. Freedom's Frame - Rick Green 6. Going Rogue - Sarah Palin 7. Refined by Fire - Brian Birdwell 8. Right from Wrong - Josh McDowell 9. The Screwtape Letters - C. S. Lewis 10. Southern Cooking Bible - Paula Deen (that last one has stayed with me in more ways than one!) ;-)
I wish I could read French. One of my co-workers can and loves reading Alexandre Dumas and Jules Verne's work in French. I'm jealous.
When people (read as Saratchandra Kasivajjala and Archana Jayaraman) tag you to list 10 books that you have read and keep with you, you know you are in trouble. Listing just 10 seems difficult. But not impossible. So, here goes: 1. Sandman (the graphic novel series) by Neil Gaiman (at the top of any list as far as I am concerned) 2. Poetry - Percy Bryce Shelley, Emily Dickinson, Keats, Khalil Gibran 3. Works of Shakespeare (sigh! Remembering those days when I declared I would only love a man who got Shakespeare, naïveté - thy name is youth) 4. Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan (the required fantasy series for every fantasy addict) 5. Books by Georgette Heyer (the required regency romance and humour series for any woman) 6. The Collected Short Stories of Roald Dahl 7. Erle Stanley Gardner - Perry Mason rocks!(even when the reader is in her thirties) 8. Books by P.G. Wodehouse - Who can leave Jeeves behind? 9. Classics - Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Somerset Maugham, Alexandre Dumas. 10. The last ...

My Picks for Turner Classic Movies for August Turner seems to have set up a streaming facility so that you can stream any film more than a day but less than a week after it showed up on TCM. Actually I would have preferred they set it up with completely different movies. But it could be a useful feature. Anyway, another month is coming. It is time to pick the films I recommend on Turner Classic Movies. TCM is showing half of what I think would be an ideal double feature. I am not sure what is going on in their minds that they did not take an evening and have the complete THREE MUSKETEERS and FOUR MUSKETEERS, particularly in this day of binge watching. All times are Eastern Daylight Saving Time. THE THREE MUSKETEERS (1973) The IMDB lists ten screen versions of Alexandre Dumas's THE THREE MUSKETEERS. I know of nobody who seriously contests that the best version is the 1973 version directed by Richard Lester and starring--get this--Michael York, Richard Chamberlain, Oliver Reed, Faye Dunaway, Charlton Heston ...

Without exception, the response to the Post-Gutenberg Revolution, by traditional publishers and the major chain bookstores, as well as most of the independents, has been to cry foul and seek ways to circle the wagons, attempting to close off all the more to the change that they are indisputably incapable of controlling. I believe the only thing that will work is to open the front door to writers like these self-publishers: Mark Twain, James Fenimore Cooper, Walt Whitman, William Blake, John Milton, Henry Adams, Ezra Pound, e. e. cummings, Edgar Allan Poe, James Joyce, D.

Through the years, many great writers and philosophers have attempted to define love. Regrettably, none of them have been able to fully explain what love really is. However, many of them have succeeded in illustrating certain aspects of love. This compilation includes 16 great love quotes by famous writers and poets like Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Victor Hugo, & Voltaire. "The first symptom of love in a young man is shyness; the first symptom in a young woman is boldness." Victor Hugo "Love is a promise; love is a souvenir; once given, it is never forgotten; never let it disappear." John Lennon "When you fish for love, bait with your heart and not with your brain." Mark Twain "Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, and penetrates walls to arrive at its destination." Maya Angelou "Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind; and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind." Williams Shakespeare "True love always makes a man better, no matter what woman inspires it". Alexandre Dumas "Lov ...

Alexandre Dumas: Greatest French writer was of… African descent Alexandre Dumas (source: Wikipedia) Alexandre Dumas (source: Wikipedia) Dear All, I was so surprised when I learned that Alexandre Dumas, yes… the writer of the “Three Musketeers” was just recently (2002) indicted into the Pantheon of Paris, you know… the place where the remains of the most famous/distinguished French citizens are buried. I wondered why?… because the Three Musketeers is the most acclaimed French book adapted to screen, movies, and theater. I wondered why?… because The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo are among the most read books by a French author in the world… why only in 2002, 132 years after his death? when Victor Hugo had been indicted in 1885? why since Rousseau, Voltaire, Emile Zola, had all been indicted, while the most read French author, Alexandre Dumas’ remains were not? Well… you’ve guessed it right: Alexandre Dumas was Black! Yes… the great French writer was just like the Rus ...

The Three Musketeers is a 2011 3D adventure film directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, based on the novel of the same title by Alexandre Dumas.[3] The film stars Matthew MacFadyen, Logan Lerman, Ray Stevenson, Luke Evans, Milla Jovovich, Orlando Bloom and Christoph Waltz.

Some favorite quotes about secrets... “There is no friendship that cares about an overheard secret.” ― Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers “Secrets are generally terrible. Beauty is not hidden--only ugliness and deformity.” ― L.M. Montgomery “Lies and secrets, Tessa, they are like a cancer in the soul. They eat away what is good and leave only destruction behind.” ― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Orange “Never hide things from hardcore thinkers. They get more aggravated, more provoked by confusion than the most painful truths.” ― Criss Jami “Nothing weighs on us so heavily as a secret.” ― Jean de La Fontaine “If you drink, you risk divulging your secrets. Here, have another glass.” ― Jarod Kintz, Seriously delirious, but not at all serious “Secrets press inside a person. They press the way water presses at a dam. The secrets and the water, they both want to get out.” ― Franny Billingsley, Chime

Hope Quotes These quotations will give you hope and build your faith. Don’t lose Hope. Allow the hope of God to flow into you. God’s hope encourages, motivates, and keeps you on the road to faith, peace, and victory. Hopelessness breeds and creates the ‘feeling‘ of depression. Hope is the road, Faith is the victory. Martin Luther – “Everything that is done in the world is done by hope.” Unknown – Don’t worry, the fog will lift. Rex Rouis – “Hope is the raw material from which faith builds the house.” Alexandre Dumas – All human wisdom is summed up in two words: wait and hope. John Fitzgerald Kennedy – We should not let our fears hold us back from pursuing our hopes. Randy Furco - You can have hope without faith, but you can not have faith without hope! Helen Keller – Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence. Aristotle – “Hope is a waking dream.” [This has also been attributed to Pindar and Plato.] Francis Bacon – ...

"Wine. The intellectual part of the meal." -Alexandre Dumas
finally finished reading my first true classic literature. Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo. in my opinion absolutly beautiful ending.
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas - "An evergreen classic with a medieval European touch" A Must read book for book lovers. Thrown in prison for a crime he has not committed, Edmond Dantès is confined to the grim fortress of If. There he learns of a great hoard of treasure hidden on the Isle of Monte Cristo and he becomes determined not only to escape, but also to unearth the treasure and use it to plot the destruction of the three men responsible for his incarceration. Dumas' epic tale of suffering and retribution, inspired by a real-life case of wrongful imprisonment, was a huge popular success when it was first serialised in the 1840s.

On this day in literary history: A 23-year-old Alexandre Dumas fought his first duel in 1825. Aand his pants fell down. Hopefully the Musketeer author's next duel was less embarrassing.
This date in the arts: - Jan. 5, 1825 - 23-year-old Alexandre Dumas (Sr.) embarked on his self-proclaimed "career as a romantic" by fighting his first duel, and having his pants fall down. Dumas's memoirs are about as reliable as his mountain of historical fiction and drama, but they tell the pants story in glorious, comedy-of-errors, "Three Musketeers" detail. - Jan. 5, 1948 - Warner Brothers-Pathe showed the very first color newsreel. The footage was of the Tournament of Roses Parade and the Rose Bowl football classic. - Jan. 5, 1961 - "Mr. Ed" debuted. The show would run for six years. - Jan. 5, 1998 - U.S. Representative Sonny Bono died in skiing accident.

In this world, if approached with eyes open, dating can help you get at these answers. You need to know, what is he now doing in preparation to be what he says he wants to be? Is there clear evidence of his vision in his work? Does he love himself and his people? Does he have a sense of humor? How well does he recover when he stumbles and falls? Does he lie? Steal? Not seeing lying or stealing wrong when others do it? Can he admit mistakes? How does he handle them? Are his gifts to you superficial, popular trinkets (regardless of monetary value) or us the bulk of his giving based on what you need, without you having to ask for it?

Quotes About Sociology “Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.” ― Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking “As a general rule...people ask for advice only in order not to follow it; or if they do follow it, in order to have someone to blame for giving it.” ― Alexandre Dumas “I'm not interested in preserving the status quo; I want to overthrow it.” ― Niccolò Machiavelli “It's supposed to be automatic, but actually you have to push this button. ” ― John Brunner, Stand on Zanzibar “My dear, I used to think I was servin ...
the first black general in the French army under Napoleon, Thomas-Alexandre Dumas, was the father of Alexandre Dumas, the author of 'The Three Musketeers' and 'The Count of Monte Cristo'.
Jules Verne The traveler who never leaves his cabinet – that’s what his contemporaries used to call Jules Verne. He was a person with an extraordinary lust for life whose fantasy had no limits – often hailed as the father of science fiction, he literally taught us how to dream. Verne began writing in earnest when at the Sorbonne, where he was supposed to be studying law. His father was horrified but, encouraged by Alexandre Dumas and Victor Hugo, Verne went on to write some of the most popular and most translated books of all time. Blurring the lines between imagination and reality, 'Great Dreamers' is a series of programs devoted to outstanding thinkers, pioneers and path breakers in science and the arts, whose daring ideas and inventions would become landmarks in our history.

INDIA’S MAN IN THE IRON MASK, As with the legendary hero of the Alexandre Dumas novel, his greatness made Subhas Chandra Bose a threat to his rivals leading to his exile and erasure from history books. NS Rajaram looks at the mystery surrounding Netaji’s life In the novel Vicomte de Bragelonne by the French writer Alexandre Dumas, an innocent man is imprisoned for life and his identity sealed behind an iron mask which cannot be removed. The reason? He happens to be the twin brother of King Louis IV, then ruling France, and might have proved a better and more popular ruler. Alert to the threat he posed, Louis had him exiled for life with his identity concealed forever behind an iron mask. When the details of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s disappearance and exile become fully known, we may find a surreal similarity between Eustache Dauger, one of the names of the masked man, and Bose. For a man so famous — he was the most popular Indian leader at the time of Indian independence — surprisingly little ...

Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes. You must look into that storm and shout as you did in Rome. Do your worst, for I will do mine! Then the fates will know you as we know you: as Albert Mondego, the man! - Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo
Georgia- Tbilisi Have you been to a city where you can find Georgian Orthodox, Armenian Gregorian and Roman Catholic churches, a synagogue, a mosque and a Zoroastrian temp le all within a 5-minute walk of each other? Then you should definitely come to Georgia and visit our capital Tbilisi – a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural, multi-religious city on the crossroads of history, a city neither European nor Asian but a heady blend of both East and West.Tbilisi was founded in the 5th century AD and has attracted visitors ever since, drawn by the hot springs for which the city is named, by the lively atmosphere of its cobbled streets and caravanserais or simply by what Alexandre Dumas called the “strange, fascinating charm” of this “city of legend and romance.” Tbilisi – the City of Hot Springs King Vakhtang Gorgasali (AD 446-502) went hunting one day around the territory of today’s Tbilisi which was then covered with a dense forest. The King wounded a pheasant and sent his falcon in pursuit. After th ...

I feel like Halle Berry. Mariah Carey. Tia and Tamera even Alexandre Dumas
According to family lore, my potty training was accomplished by stacking a pile of books in the bathroom, so in the beginning I cut my teeth on Dr. Seuss. But then I soon moved on to the Nancy Drew series that were ghost written by several different authors under the pseudonym Carolyn Keene. From there my love of mysteries grew and I moved up to Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Martha Grimes. In school, my love for literature was ignited with the likes of Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Shakespeare, the Bronte sisters, Jane Austen, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert Browning, William Wordsworth, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Alexandre Dumas, Lord Alfred Tennyson, and Edgar Allan Poe. Yet that is only a condensed list. At the same time as I was learning great literature I was also discovering the excitement of science fiction. While Jules Verne and H.G. Wells are legends in their own right, for me, the two greatest names of that genre shall and always be, Isaac Asimov and Frank Herbert. The Foundat ...

I. BIOGRAPHY Family Background Dumas Davy de la Pailleterie (later known as Alexandre Dumas) was born in Villers-Cotterêts in the department of Aisne, in Picardy, France. He had an older sister, Marie-Alexandrine (b. before 1798). Their father was Thomas-Alexandre Dumas, born in the French colony of Saint-Domingue (now Haiti), the mixed-race son of the marquis Alexandre-Antoine Davy de la Pailleterie, a French nobleman and général commissaire in the artillery of the colony, and Marie-Cessette Dumas, a slave who was of Afro-Caribbean ancestry. It is not known whether she was born in Saint-Domingue or in Africa (although the fact that she had a French surname probably means that she was Creole), nor is it known from which African people her ancestors came. Brought back to France by his father, Thomas-Alexandre was educated in a military school and joined the army as a young man. He married Marie-Louise Élisabeth Labouret, the daughter of an innkeeper. He took his mother's name, Dumas, after a break wit ...
Like Lord Byron, Alexandre Dumas, the famous French author of The Three Musketeers books, was long ago made immortal, but only now, with the help of the psychic beauty with whom he is falling in love, CA he take revenge against his archenemy, the villainous Comte de St. Germain.
Is the "Black" in Black History being stolen? Can Black History survive or will it go the way of the "Lindy Hop" co-opted to become 'The Charleston' because 1920s white society could not openly acknowledge they were emulating anything from Black Culture. Perhaps Black History will be transformed like Beale Street the home of Black Music in Memphis, Tennessee subjected to gentrification to exclude the overwhelming black community that created Beale Street's Blues and Soul atmosphere. The Paris, France Fashion Industry coined the phrase 'ethnic fashion' meaning deny specific African influences while profiting from African inspiration. Numero Magazine has gone one step further by "ethno-sizing models thereby eliminating the inconvenience of hiring an African or descendant thereof to portray an,African Queen. It should be no surprise because in 2010 Geradieu Depardieu "ethno-sized" the character Alexandre Dumas by 'blacking up' for the movie "The Other Dumas". "The producers of The Other Dumas made it clear t ...

Started "The Three Musketeers" by Alexandre Dumas today.. pretty good so far. Dumas is spectacular even nearly 170 years later.
 Jules Verne was studying to be a lawyer when he combined his childhood interest in travel and exploration, with his ability to write, and became the most prominent pioneer of the science-fiction genre. Influenced by contemporary authors like Alexandre Dumas and Victor Hugo, Verne's stories told of astounding voyages and adventures, incorporating scientific and geographical details that made them very believable. He originally wrote travel stories for a French magazine, but eventually signed with a publisher who accepted at least two volumes per year. The most successful of these were Journey to the Center of the Earth, From the Earth to the Moon, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, and Around the World in Eighty Days, collectively known as "Les Voyages Extraordinaires" ("extraordinary voyages"). Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before air travel and practical submarines were invented, and before practical means of space travel had been devised. Born on this day in 1828, Jules Verne ...
"Until the 5th century BC, the Zoroastrians had, according to Herodotus, "no altars, no temples, no images; they worshipped on the tops of mountains. They adored the heavens and sacrificed to the sun, moon, fire and water." Later, however, they preserved their mystical traditions in architecture and temple carvings. Their first temples were high-roofed, open-sided "forests of pillars," into which flooded the radiance of sun and of stars -- refreshing contrasts to the dark interiors of other religious structures. After a time, construction became more elaborate. Alexandre Dumas, Sr. mentioned one castle-cathedral-like building in his Travels in the Caucasus: the sacred Attesh-Gag, located on the shores of the Caspian Sea. This was carved out of solid rock in whose center a high tower rested on four huge columns, through which an inexhaustible fire "from the heart of the mother-rock" was drawn upwards into the atmosphere, a fire that had burned undiminished for three thousand years -- until the late ninetee ...
