The Classics - CLOSING LINES: Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne

"We need scarcely mention that her uncle was the illustrious Professor Hardwigg, corresponding member of all the scientific, geographical, mineralogical, and geological societies of the five parts of the globe.

End of the Voyage Extraordinaire."  

(Published 1871)

I love the classics and plan to alternately share some "CLOSING lines" over the coming months. Comment if you wish, or read for inspiration. Writing styles were different then, or were they really?  


  1. I have always planned to read this novel since I love the 1959 movie with James Mason

  2. I remember this film. Great lines.

  3. Writing styles were different, but it is always surprising how similar they were!

    1. I wonder if the book was really someone's journal.


"Stay" is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary
(A.B. Alcott). Stay and visit awhile. Your comments mean a lot to me.
