Quotation of the Day: “The term ‘Fable’ is not very easy to define rigorously. In the most typical form some moral precept is set forth by means of a conception purely fantastic, and usually somewhat trivial into the bargain; there is something playful about it, that will not support a very exacting criticism, and the lesson must be apprehended by the fancy at half a hint.” Robert Louis Stevenson, Learning to Write 107 (1888; repr. 1920).
