  • 2017 Reprint of 1953 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. I Dare You! is the expression of William H. Danforth's personal philosophy of "Four-square" personal development. Much more than a primer on the mechanics of balanced success, it is a riveting and motivational incitement to action. This brief book will provide you with the roadmap for success as well as a jolt of energy encouraging you to follow that path and fulfill your potential. William H. Danforth, who founded the Nestle Purina company, saw life as a type of checkerboard. Danforth believed that four key components (or "squares") – the mental, the physical, the social, and the religious – needed to be in balance in order to achieve fulfillment and success in life. He encapsulated his ideas in I Dare You!, a book he published in 1931 ago in which he urges readers of any age to take chances and fulfill their full potential through his strategies of becoming a more risk-taking person.

  • The sun had sunk behind the lonely western seas; Ulva, and Lunga, and the Dutchman's Cap had grown dark on the darkening waters; and the smooth Atlantic swell was booming along the somber caves; but up here in Castle Dare, on the high and rocky coast of Mull, the great hall was lit with such a blaze of candles as Castle Dare had but rarely seen. . . .In the words of The Cambridge History of English and American Literature, William Black made "full use of the properties, highland pride and feuds, pipers, legends, ballads and superstitions, the trusted and officious old retainer and dialect; to all this he imparts a personal quality by two rather novel practices. First, he develops the description, in a quasi-poetical style, of the sky and heather and sea of the Hebrides into a separate art, his skill in which won for him a standing among artists; twelve of the most famous illustrators of the day contributed to Macleod of Dare. . . . A second device which Black elaborated . . . was the clash of temperaments of widely differing racial types. The Gaelic Macleod of Dare, moody, passionate, foredoomed, should have shown vividly in contrast with the actress Gertrude White, city-born and bred."

  • William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was an English poet, playwright, and actor, considered by many as the greatest English writer. Hundreds of specialists were able to translate his works into every major language, and most of the plays are performed more often than those of any other author. The Taming of the Shrew is a stellar comedy that tells the tale of Petruchio, a fortune seeker who decides to marry Katherina, a strong-willed and even stubborn young woman. Petruchio then tries to tame her temperament in a hilarious style that only Shakespeare can create.
