Urashima Taro is a Japanese legend about a fisherman who rescues a turtle and is rewarded for this with a visit to Ryūgū-jō, the palace of Ryūjin, the Dragon God, under the sea. He stays there for three days and, upon his return to his village, finds himself 300 years in the future.

Literary Birthday, Alexandre Dumas, born 24 July 1802, died 5 December 1870
12 Quotes
Learning does not make one learned: there are those who have knowledge and those who have understanding. The first requires memory and the second philosophy.
One’s work may be finished someday, but one’s education never.
Infatuated, half through conceit, half through love of my art, I achieve the impossible working as no one else ever works.
There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness.
There are two distinct sorts of ideas: Those that proceed from the head and those that emanate from the heart.
In business, sir, one has no friends, only correspondents.
Life is a storm, my young friend. You will bask in the sunlight one moment, be shattered on the rocks the next. What makes you a man is what you do when that storm comes.
As a general rule…people ask for advice only in order not to follow it; or if they do follow it, in order to have someone to blame for giving it.
The difference between treason and patriotism is only a matter of dates.
There are two ways of seeing: with the body and with the soul. The body’s sight can sometimes forget, but the soul remembers forever.
True love always makes a man better, no matter what woman inspires it.
Your life story is a novel; and people, though they love novels bound between two yellow paper covers, are oddly suspicious of those which come to them in living vellum, even when they are gilded.
Dumas was a French writer. He is most famous for historical adventure novels, including The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers.

Let go ~ Ajahn Chah http://bit.ly/1tulpyU
Let go. Whenever there is any feeling of clinging, we detach from it because we know that very feeling is just as it is.
