Petwill1: Watched the first 2 of It Ain't Half Hot Mum. Kenneth Macdonald's character is really goofy here & all poor Mike Kinsey does for 8 series is eat. Saying poor, but that sounds like my dream job. Not used to George Layton in them as he wasn't in the ones I used to see. Great stuff.

mair__wright: George MacDonald on Sunday Well indeed is it for all honest souls to be shaken, who have been building upon doctrines concerning Christ, upon faith, upon experiences, upon anything but Christ himself.

in_ardua_tendit: I will say George MacDonald Fraser in Quartered Safe Out Here is both admiring of Gurkhas and other colonial army soldiers, and sometimes seems a bit dismissive of their hardship/deaths.

MechaNonPlacet: Kingsley Amis. Though I do think we need to remember how much shorter good novels are than good history books. Then Simon Raven and probably George MacDonald Fraser or Ian Fleming next. But I’d have to examine my heart, and a list of Target Dr Who novelisations, to be 100% sure.

in_ardua_tendit: During my three hour sleep intermission last night, George MacDonald Fraser was cracking me up with his description of being dropped into a well right before the advance on Pyawbwe. That and pilfering the airdrop supplies. And basically everything Grandarse says is pure comedy.

Skunkyrunty: “Doing the will of God leaves me no time for disputing about His plans.” ― George MacDonald “What God may hereafter require of you, you must not give yourself the least trouble about. Everything He gives you to do, you must do as well as ever you can,

EOrthodoxy: "If you find what I tell you untrue, it will only be that it is not grand and free and bounteous enough. To think anything too good to be true, is to deny God--to say the untrue may be better than the true--that there might be a greater God than he. ~ George MacDonald

andrewhebert86: "Obedience" by George MacDonald (one of CS Lewis' favorite authors): I said, “Let me walk in the fields.” He said, “No walk in the town.” I said, “There are no flowers there.” He said, “No flowers, but a crown.”
