Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.Mark Twain
Ken Guest shared a quote
White Wolf (Drenai Saga, #10) by David Gemmell
How simple love would be, Younger Brother, if we only had to bestow it on those who deserved it. Yet what would it be worth? If you gave a poor man a silver coin then that would be a gift. If you expected him to pay you back, then that would make it a loan. We do not loan our love, Lantern. We give it freely.David Gemmell

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.George Bernard Shaw

Consider my mind blown - the breadth of imagination and depth of characters makes me wonder just how I hadn't heard of Erikson before.
