But who of those who read "Treasure Island" did not dream of being in his place, next to the vigorous Dr. Livesey and the infernal captain Silver? ..

Dr. Livesey: If you do not stop drinking, you will soon save the world from one of the most vile bastards!
John Silver: Let the one who has enough spirit take out his dirk, and I, albeit on a crutch, will see what color his offal is before this tube goes out!


"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" by JK Rowling

Novels by JK Rowling about the young wizard Harry Potter - an exciting reading for children and adults.

An orphan living with unsympathetic relatives becomes the star of the school of wizards, an opponent of the great dark magician Volan de Mort, the favorite of fair Dumbledore and all the time gets involved in extraordinary adventures. Harry Potter is not just a boy from a book. He is a symbol and code, like Marilyn Monroe. Only instead of a fluttering dress with a flared skirt he has round glasses and a zipper scar.

Hat: I see a lot of courage ... still a good mind, there is a talent, oh yeah ... and an indomitable desire to show yourself. Where to define you?
Harry: Only not Slytherin ... Only not Slytherin ...
