The Rules:
If you recognize the quotation, or if you think you are able to guess who wrote it, please post a comment. Just leave a hint, do not spoil the fun by giving too much away. The book will be reviewed on Friday.

WANTED: tins with British and American flavour.

Thank you, Kerrie, Margot and Tim, for your contributions. But I still have plenty of space on my ´shelf´.
