“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

“A thin ungracious drink is the well-spring, a drink for queasy-stomached skipjacks: for sand-levericks, not for men. And like it is the dayspring: an ungrateful sapless hour, an hour for stab-i'-the-backs and cold-blooded betrayers. Ah, give me wine, and noon-day vices, and brazen-browed iniquities.”
E. R. Eddison
