Three Cheers For Base
Three Cheers For Base Sented by Michael

A short look at what happens when the developers come to town, threatening a centuries-old way of life. We meet the people; share their lives, their hopes and fears and watch as a small, isolated community battles against seemingly impossible odds. We watch, as one man, struggles to remain sane, through all the turbulence and torment by simply asking the right questions: Do ducks smile? Do teabags really need curing? Does The Rule ever flag? A story of optimism overcoming lethargy, hope trumping reason, enduring friendship, political shenanigans and smelly fish.

Great Expectations
Great Expectations Sented by Luis

Ours was the marsh country, down by the river, within, as the river wound, twenty miles of the sea. My first most vivid and broad impression of the identity of things, seems to me to have been gained on a memorable raw afternoon towards evening. At such a time I found out for certain, that this bleak place overgrown with nettles was the churchyard; and that Philip Pirrip, late of this parish, and also Georgiana wife of the above, were dead and buried; and that Alexander, Bartholomew, Abraham, Tobias, and Roger, infant children of the aforesaid, were also dead and buried; and that the dark flat wilderness beyond the churchyard, intersected with dykes and mounds and gates, with scattered cattle feeding on it, was the marshes; and that the low leaden line beyond, was the river; and that the distant savage lair from which the wind was rushing, was the sea; and that the small bundle of shivers growing afraid of it all and beginning to cry, was Pip.

The Great Gatsby
The Great Gatsby Sented by Luis

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since. ‘Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,’ he told me, ‘just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.’

Anne of Green Gables
Anne of Green Gables Sented by Michael

With this Mrs. Rachel stepped out of the lane into the backyard of Green Gables. Very green and neat and precise was that yard, set about on one side with great patriarchal willows and the other with prim Lombardies. Not a stray stick nor stone was to be seen, for Mrs. Rachel would have seen it if there had been. Privately she was of the opinion that Marilla Cuthbert swept that yard over as often as she swept her house. One could have eaten a meal off the ground without overbrimming the proverbial peck of dirt.

Agnes Grey
Agnes Grey Sented by Paul

All true histories contain instruction; though, in some, the treasure may be hard to find, and when found, so trivial in quantity, that the dry, shrivelled kernel scarcely compensates for the trouble of cracking the nut. Whether this be the case with my history or not, I am hardly competent to judge. I sometimes think it might prove useful to some, and entertaining to others; but the world may judge for itself. Shielded by my own obscurity, and by the lapse of years, and a few fictitious names, I do not fear to venture; and will candidly lay before the public what I would not disclose to the most intimate friend.

Aesop's Fables
Aesop's Fables Sented by Luis

The Sick Lion A Lion had come to the end of his days and lay sick unto death at the mouth of his cave, gasping for breath. The animals, his subjects, came round him and drew nearer as he grew more and more helpless. When they saw him on the point of death they thought to themselves: ‘Now is the time to pay off old grudges.’ So the Boar came up and drove at him with his tusks; then a Bull gored him with his horns; still the Lion lay helpless before them: so the Ass, feeling quite safe from danger, came up, and turning his tail to the Lion kicked up his heels into his face. ‘This is a double death,’ growled the Lion. Only cowards insult dying majesty.

Les Miserables
Les Miserables Sented by Luis

In 1815, M. Charles-Francois-Bienvenu Myriel was Bishop of D—— He was an old man of about seventy-five years of age; he had occupied the see of D—— since 1806. Although this detail has no connection whatever with the real substance of what we are about to relate, it will not be superfluous, if merely for the sake of exactness in all points, to mention here the various rumors and remarks which had been in circulation about him from the very moment when he arrived in the diocese. True or false, that which is said of men often occupies as important a place in their lives, and above all in their destinies, as that which they do. M. Myriel was the son of a councillor of the Parliament of Aix; hence he belonged to the nobility of the bar. It was said that his father, destining him to be the heir of his own post, had married him at a very early age, eighteen or twenty, in accordance with a custom which is rather widely prevalent in parliamentary families. In spite of this marriage, however, it was said that Charles Myriel created a great deal of talk. He was well formed, though rather short in stature, elegant, graceful, intelligent; the whole of the first portion of his life had been devoted to the world and to gallantry.

Bleak House
Bleak House Sented by Paul

A Chancery judge once had the kindness to inform me, as one of a company of some hundred and fifty men and women not labouring under any suspicions of lunacy, that the Court of Chancery, though the shining subject of much popular prejudice (at which point I thought the judge’s eye had a cast in my direction), was almost immaculate. There had been, he admitted, a trivial blemish or so in its rate of progress, but this was exaggerated and had been entirely owing to the ‘parsimony of the public,’ which guilty public, it appeared, had been until lately bent in the most determined manner on by no means enlarging the number of Chancery judges appointed—I believe by Richard the Second, but any other king will do as well.

Гадкий утенок
Гадкий утенок Sented by Michael

Хорошо было за городом! Стояло лето, рожь уже пожелтела, овсы зеленели, сено было смётано в стога; по зелёному лугу расхаживал длинноногий аист и болтал по-египетски — он выучился этому языку от матери. За полями и лугами тянулись большие леса с глубокими озёрами в самой чаще. Да, хорошо было за городом! На солнечном припёке лежала старая усадьба, окружённая глубокими канавами с водой; от самой ограды вплоть до воды рос лопух, да такой большой, что маленькие ребятишки могли стоять под самыми крупными из его листьев во весь рост. В чаще лопуха было так же глухо и дико, как в густом лесу, и вот там-то сидела на яйцах утка. Сидела она уже давно, и ей порядком надоело это сидение, её мало навещали: другим уткам больше нравилось плавать по канавкам, чем сидеть в лопухе да крякать с нею.

Alfa Cellatları
Alfa Cellatları Sented by Michael

SAN FRANSİSCO, turistler için oldukça büyük ve ilginç bir kenttir. Bu kente sert bir kasım gecesi, saat on sularında eşyasız ve habersiz olarak, çok uzaklardan bir yolcu gelmişti. Ortalıkta sisli havanın sessizliği ve rüzgârın Em-barkadero boyunca yayılan rıhtım süprüntüleri arasından gelen hafif uğultusu vardı. Sisin kararttığı sulara baktı; römorkör seslerini ve Hunter’s Point'ten, Farallans'a kadar yayılan sis düdüklerinin senfonisini dinledi. Okyanusun tuzlu havasını kokladı. Vücudunun çıplak yerlerine rüzgârın nemini hissediyordu.
