“Let worthy minds ne'er stagger in distrust
To suffer death or shame for what is just”
E. R. Eddison, The Worm Ouroboros

“The harvest of this world is to the resolute, and he that is infirm of purpose is ground betwixt the upper and the nether millstone”
E.R. Eddison, The Worm Ouroboros

“Us, little children of the dust, children of a day, who with so many burdens do burden us with taking thought and with fears and desires and devious schemings of the mind, so that we wax old before our time and fall weary ere the brief day be spent and one reaping-hook gather us home at last for all our pains.”
E.R. Eddison, The Worm Ouroboros
