Pablo Casals
“The love of one's country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border? ”
Pablo Casals

Martin Amis
“Yet no one seemed to have thought through the implications of a world in which everyone cheated. The other morning Keith had bought five hundred vanity sachets of Outrage, his staple perfume. At lunchtime he discovered that they all contained water, a substance not much less expensive than Outrage, but harder to sell. Keith was relieved that he had already unloaded half the consignment on Damian Noble in the Portobello Road. Then he held Damian's tenners up to the light: they were crude forgeries. He passed on the notes without much trouble, in return for twenty-four bottles of vodka which, it turned out, contained a misty, faintly scented liquid. Outrage!”
Martin Amis, London Fields

Thomas McGuane
“That food was so bad I can't wait for it to become a turd and leave me.”
Thomas McGuane, To Skin a Cat

Bertrand Russell
“I believe that when I die I shall rot, and nothing of my ego will survive. I am not young and I love life. But I should scorn to shiver with terror at the thought of annihilation. Happiness is nonetheless true happiness because it must come to an end, nor do thought and love lose their value because they are not everlasting. Many a man has borne himself proudly on the scaffold; surely the same pride should teach us to think truly about man's place in the world. Even if the open windows of science at first make us shiver after the cosy indoor warmth of traditional humanizing myths, in the end the fresh air brings vigour, and the great spaces have a splendour of their own.”
Bertrand Russell

Sarah Vowell
“There is something aesthetically pleasing about trading one engraving - and old map - for another - American money.”
Sarah Vowell, The Partly Cloudy Patriot
