Short Story:  The Emperor’s New Suit by Hans Christian Anderson

Poem:  Carpe Diem by Robert Frost

“The present 
Is too much for the senses, 
Too crowding, too confusing- 
Too present to imagine.”

Essay:  On Running After One’s Hat by G.K. Chesterton

“The true optimist who sees in such things an opportunity for enjoyment is quite as logical and much more sensible than the ordinary “Indignant Ratepayer” who sees in them an opportunity for grumbling.”

“An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.”
