Scottish writer, Robert Louis Stevenson was renowned Scottish travel writer, novelist, essayist and poet who gained recognition for his novels and short stories. Apart from fiction, he made significant contributions to history, anthropology, and also penned biographies. Owing to his ailing health due to weak lungs, Louis was confined to bed for a long time during his childhood. He took lessons from tutors at home who taught him ‘Arabian nights’, ‘Shakespeare’, and ‘The Old testament’. He was fascinated with books not for what they were, but the roots, stories and morals they contained. Many say that Louis travelled in order to escape his illness and that made him a great travel writer. But the travelling that he did with his grandfather, preaching in distant countries seemed to be his motivation. His characters looked as real as possible, revolving around incidents, places, professions and incidents that would contribute to a great story. ‘Treasure Island’, ‘Kidnapped’, ‘A Child's Garden of Verses’, ‘Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ are some of his iconic works. His writings, thoughts, quotes, essays and books will surely serve as a guiding light in stormy nights. In appreciation for this legendary author, we have compiled some of his best quotations on life, travel, books, solitude, punishment, secret, happiness, self-discovery and joy.
