  • Michael shared from Snuff: (Discworld Novel 39) (Discworld series) by Terry Pratchett
    Indeed, if a poor man will spend a year in prison for stealing out of hunger, how high would the gallows need to be to hang the rich man who breaks the law out of greed?’
    Note: This reminded me of the Members of Parliament expenses scandal we seen in the news not too long ago.
  • Michael shared from The War of the Worlds (Bantam Classics) by H.G. Wells
    No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man’s and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water.
  • Michael shared from The Hunger Games: 1/3 (Hunger Games Trilogy) by Suzanne Collins
    The rules of the Hunger Games are simple. In punishment for the uprising, each of the twelve districts must provide one girl and one boy, called tributes, to participate. The twenty-four tributes will be imprisoned in a vast outdoor arena that could hold anything from a burning desert to a frozen wasteland. Over a period of several weeks, the competitors must fight to the death. The last tribute standing wins.
