Answers Saturday sermonizers: The first,



Saturday sermonizers:

The first, in black is indeed Charles Kingsley as guessed by two bloggers.

The next two, in blue, are John Wesley--a marvelous expositor of some of the truths of the Bible, a thoughtful and perceptive critic, and from all accounts, a remarkably holy man. The more I learn about him, the more I am inclined to like him.

First and Last,

1. As Ms. vonHuben observed, this is the first line of Shirley Jackson's remarkable Haunting of Hill House.
2. As Dylan so rightfully noted this is Hermann Hesse's Magister Ludi; or The Glass Bead Game, first line
3. First line, Stephen King, Carrie
4. Last line, Ray Bradbury Fahrenheit 451
5. First Line, Theodore Dreiser An American Tragedy
6. Last line, Thomas Hardy, Far From the Madding Crown
7. First Line, Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms
8. Last line, Ian Fleming, Thunderball
9. First line, Raymond Chandler, The Big Sleep
10. Last line, William Golding, Lord of the Flies

And so, to quote Prospero,

"Now my charms are all o'erthrown,
And what strength I have's mine own,
Which is most faint: now, 'tis true,
I must be here confined by you,"
