Tuck Everlasting

"The ownership of land is an odd thing when you come to think of it. How deep, after all, can it go? If a person owns a piece of land, does he own it all the way down, in ever narrowing dimensions, till it meets all other pieces at the center of the earth? Or does ownership consist of only a thin crust under which the friendly worms have never heard of trespassing?"

Tuck Everlasting, p. 7

  1. This book is a fantastic dream.

  2. This book looks great just from that one quote! I think I might get it.

  3. Solid quote! My favourite on is from 'The Prince' By Niccolo Machiavelli

    "For one change leaves a dovetail into which another will fit."

  4. I found this book ever so depressing...I sadly never really enjoyed it.. sigh
