... the book closest to me...

Following the invitation of djentry, I take part in the game, and ask djentry himself, καπετάνισσα, Carla, μαρκησία του Ο., μαίανδρος, to take part as well. Here are the rules:

  1. Hold the book that lies closer to you.
  2. Open it at page 123 (if the book has less than 123 pages, leave it and go to the next closest book).
  3. Find the fifth phrase of the book - that is, from period (.) to period (.)
  4. Write down the next three phrases.
  5. Ask from five people to do the same.

"Whatever was written on the paper, it must have some kind of political meaning. So far as he could see, there were two possibilities. One, much the more likely, was that the girl was an agent of the Thought Police, just as he had feared."

Nineteen eighty-four, George Orwell (1949)

Anonym hat gesagt…

Αυτό που του χρειαζόταν ήταν το μπάνιο που μόλις είχε κάνει.
Τότε άρχισα να λυπάμαι τον εαυτό μου και σκέφτηκα ότι θα ήταν μεγαλύτερη φιλανθρωπία αν μου έδινε εμένα κάποιος ένα φανελένιο πουκάμισο παρά αν έδινα εγώ σ'αυτόν ένα ολόκληρο μαγαζί με ρούχα.
Σε καθέναν που χτυπά το κακό στη ρίζα του αντιστοιχούν άλλοι χίλιοι που πριονίζουν ανώφελα τα κλαδιά του.
