Looking for treasures Part One

I love this collection:

Golden Treasury of the Familiar by Ralph L. Woods

Politics Defined
by Oscar Ameringer

The art of obtaining money from the rich and votes from the poor, on the pretext of protecting each from the other.

One of the best gifts my grandparents ever gave me was the enormous scattering of books around their house: the Ralph L. Woods books, Time-Life western books, National Geographic magazines, Huck Finn, Chinese Mythology, Reader's Digest.......

Do Not Go Gently Into That Good Night
by Dylan Thomas

Do not go gently into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
rage, rage against the dying of the light.

I feel like I've been asleep for months.
