Was a Masterpiece Theater classic

I've scoured my brain and even tried to google it (which I don't do till I give up), and I still can't place it. Maybe someone else will guess it, though.

"Yes, OUT OF THE SILENT PLANET C. S. Lewis"

Well, it's been over 30 years since I read it, so I can be forgiven for not recognizing it. Right? :)

Absolutely! Go treat yourself and read it again:-)

Between world wars - politics, socialism, educational values,

I'll have to read it. I've read the Narnia series, The Screwtape Letters, and several of CS Lewis's nonfiction books, but I haven't read this series. $7.99 seems a bit expensive for a book with 169 pages though . . .

Next up:

"Always remember, child" her first teacher had impressed on her, "that to think bad thoughts is really the easiest thing in the world. If you leave your mind to itself it will spiral you down into ever-increasing unhappiness. To think good thoughts, however, requires effort. This is one of the things that need discipline -training- is about. So train your mind to dwell on sweet perfumes, the touch of this silk, tender raindrops against the shoji, the curve of the flower arrangement, the tranquillity of dawn. Then, at length, you won't have to make such a great effort and you will be of value to yourself,..."

James Clavell - SHOGUN?

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 24, 2012 8:17:51 AM PDT
If I still had it in paperback, I'd send it to you. There are some pretty good used prices on Amazon right now.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 24, 2012 8:24:41 AM PDT
Yeah, I would like to have it for my Kindle, though.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 24, 2012 12:24:54 PM PDT
No one else seems to be guessing, so I will confirm, yes, it is from Shogun, one of my all time favorite novels. Boy, you guess mine in about 5 seconds, and yours stump me. :(

R. F. Delderfield TO SERVE THEM ALL MY DAYS - a wonderful book!

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 24, 2012 12:40:58 PM PDT
Never even heard of it. I'll have to add it to my wish list.

Next! These are from a modern, fairly recently popular book:

"They want to address the practical, moral, and philosophical value of reading-spread out over three issues and by three different authors. I am to cover the philosophical side of the debate and so far my only thought is that reading keeps you from going gaga. You can see I need help."

"I gave a talk on the Brontë girls once when it was my turn to speak. I'm sorry I can't send you my notes on Charlotte and Emily-I used them to kindle a fire in my cookstove, there being no other paper in the house. I'd already burnt up my tide tables, the Book of Revelation, and the story about Job."

"Your questions regarding that gentleman are very delicate, very subtle, very much like being smacked in the head with a mallet. Am I in love with him? What kind of a question is that? It's a tuba among the flutes, and I expect better of you."

"When my son, Ian, died at El Alamein-side by side with Eli's father, John-visitors offering their condolences, thinking to comfort me, said "Life goes on." What nonsense, I thought, of course it doesn't. It's death that goes on; Ian is dead now and will be dead tomorrow and next year and forever. There's no end to that."

"It's a real lightning bolt, this Science of Phrenology. I've found out more in the last three days than I knew in my whole life before. Mrs. Guilbert has always been a nasty one, but now I know that she can't help it-she's got a big pit in her Benevolence spot. She fell in the quarry when she was a girl, and my guess is she cracked her Benevolence and was never the same since."

Must be a popular book that I haven't read yet. I suck at this game :)

Me too. I am kicking myself over Norah's last one.

Not as bad as I do.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 25, 2012 10:15:50 AM PDT
I listened to the audiobook. I loved it, but there's no way I would have gotten that. Even knowing the book doesn't help.

OK, next:

"You think when you wake up in the mornin yesterday don't count. But yesterday is all that does count. What else is there? Your life is made out of the days it's made out of. Nothin else."

"I always thought when I got older that God would sort of come into my life in some way. He didn't. I don't blame him. If I was him I'd have the same opinion about me that he does."

"I think if you were Satan and you were settin around tryin to think up somethin that would just bring the human race to its knees what you would probably come up with is narcotics."

Ooh, I think I know this one-maybe.
Is it Midnight Cowboy?
NOPE-I was wrong.
