“All human wisdom is contained in these two words - Wait and Hope”
Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

David Hume
“Beauty is no quality in things themselves: It exists merely in the mind which contemplates them; and each mind perceives a different beauty.”
David Hume, Of the Standard of Taste and Other Essays

David Hume
“All sentiment is right; because sentiment has a reference to nothing beyond itself, and is always real, wherever a man is conscious of it. But all determinations of the understanding are not right; because they have a reference to something beyond themselves, to wit, real matter of fact; and are not always conformable to that standard.”
David Hume, Of the Standard of Taste and Other Essays

Larry Gent
“My full name used to be weird enough that nobody would ever call me it. Then that show had to become popular. Damn that show. It ruined a horrible name.”
