PAST PAGES
The Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson was born on this day in 1850. Stevenson is famous for "Treasure Island," "Kidnapped," and "Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." Fittingly, Stevenson loved to travel and lived at times in the United States and sailed the Pacific Ocean. Born into frail health, he died in 1894 in the Samoan Islands at the age of 44.

<p>The Oscar Wilde quote reminds me of some adage picked up during seven years of French -- he who hasn&#39;t re-read, hasn&#39;t read. (Sounds better in French.) Definitely both theories I subscribe to!</p>
