Sweet are the uses of adversity,
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head;
And this our life exempt from public haunt
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones and good in every thing.
So says William Shakespeare in the voice of Duke Senior,
As You Like it.
Welcome to Lystra Books and Literary Services,
founded in 2012 as a place
for readers and writers to find
tongues, books, sermons and good in every thing.
