    One thought on “The White Bull

    1. Beautifully written, but the story itself is hardly a story to care for.

    2. I choose that a story should be founded on probability, and not always resemble a dream I desire to find nothing in it trivial or extravagant and I desire above all, that under the appearance of fable there may appear some latent truth, obvious to the discerning eye, though it escape the observation of the vulgar Amasidia

    3. Voltaire s wisdom is undeniable and his beliefs timeless and this book proves it

    4. I enjoyed it Maybe not as much as The The Princess of Babylon , but it was still a nice story, full of magic, wonders and memorable heroes.
