“Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future.” 
One of the most timeless classics in the world. The story begins with a scientist describing his latest invention to a group of his dinner friends. They are naturally skeptic when he describes a machine that can travel through time. One of his friends is curious though and when he returns to visit the scientist, he finds him haggard and spent, and sits and listens to the "time traveller's unbelievable story. This is the classic novella that arguably gave birth to science-fiction as we know it. And it is still incredibly readable, imaginative, engaging, and thought-provoking. Not to mention ahead of its time!
