my review of the 23 things in quotes:

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
-Charles Dickens,
A Tale of Two Cities

Technology is dominated by two types of people: those who understand what they do not manage, and those who manage what they do not understand.
-Putt's Law

"Reeling and Writhing, of course, to begin with,"' the Mock Turtle replied; "and then the different branches of Arithmetic--Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision."
-Lewis Carroll

"To go wrong in one's own way is better than to go right in someone else's."
-Fyodor Dostoevsky

"Progress was a labyrinth . . . people plunging blindly in and then rushing wildly back, shouting that they had found it."
-F. Scott Fitzgerald

Every one wanted to say so much that no one said anything in particular.
-Rudyard Kipling

i looked at the downloadable audiobooks. i had actually downloaded the hunchback of notre dame for katie when she had to read it, but with the way it was written, it was easier for her to read it. i found several books that i might listen to sometime.
