Quote of the Day

I kept always two books in my pocket, one to read, one to write in.

–Robert Louis Stevenson

In writing Treasure Island and his many other tales of adventure, Robert Louis Stevenson (born November 13, 1850) drew on his own extensive travels. Born in Scotland, the writer lived his last years on a Samoan island where he was dubbed Tusitala, Samoan for “teller of tales.”
