Niccolò Machiavelli
“It is not titles that honour men, but men that honour titles.”
Niccolò Machiavelli

Alberto Manguel
“Old books that we have known but not possessed cross our path and invite themselves over. New books try to seduce us daily with tempting titles and tantalizing covers. ”
Alberto Manguel, The Library at Night

Julia Quinn
“Stirlings of old had been so damned besotted with their newfound earldom that they couldn't think to put any other name on anything...It was a wonder he didn't drink Kilmartin Tea and sit on a Kilmartin-style chair. In fact, he probably would be doing just that if his grandmother had found a way to manage it without actually taking the family into trade. ”
Julia Quinn, When He Was Wicked

Alan Moore
“Books require titles; reading them doesn't”
Alan Moore, Lost Girls

Leigh Bardugo
“Your highness—”
“Nikolai,” he corrected. “But I’ve also been known to answer to ‘sweetheart’ or ‘handsome.’”
Mal whirled, but I silenced him with a pleading look.
“You need to stop that right now, Nikolai,” I said. “Or I’ll knock those princely teeth out myself.”
Leigh Bardugo, Siege and Storm

Charles Dickens
“There are some promotions in life, which, independent of the more substantial rewards they offer, acquire peculiar value and dignity from the coats and waistcoats connected with them. A field-marshal has his uniform; a bishop his silk apron; a counsellor his silk gown; a beadle his cocked hat. Strip the bishop of his apron, or the beadle of his hat and lace; what are they? Men. Mere men. Dignity, and even holiness too, sometimes, are more questions of coat and waistcoat than some people imagine.”
Charles Dickens, Oliver Twistder Ungekürzte Originaltext

Andrew Ashling
“Dav­el­lon may be a vil­lage, but the Dav­el­lon House can be any­thing you make it. No­bil­ity has to start some­where. It might as well start with you. Let no­body look down on you, for what­ever rea­son, My Lord. Ti­tles are granted or in­her­ited, no­bil­ity isn't.

~Tenaxos I to Landar Parmingh, Baron Davellon”

Sheri Cobb South
“Mr. Brundy," she said with a nod, making the most perfunctory of curtsies to her father's guest.
He made no move to take her hand, but merely bowed and responded in kind. "Lady 'elen."
"My name is Helen, Mr. Brundy," she said coldly.
"Very well- 'elen," said Mr. Brundy, surprised and gratified at being given permission, and on such short acquaintance, to dispense with the use of her courtesy title.”
Sheri Cobb South, The Weaver Takes a Wife

“अगर आपकी पहचान आपके अंकों* से है, तो आपकी कोई पहचान नहीं

If you are famous for your scores* then you are known for nothing

Marks help you know your progress while learning. Post that Marks are irrelevant.

Let not Wealth/ Salary/ Certificates/ Marks/ Grades become your Journey!”

Thomas Paine
“The genuine mind of man, thirsting for its native home, society, contemns the gewgaws that separate him from it. Titles are like circles drawn by the magician's wand, to contract the sphere of man's felicity. He lives immured within the Bastille of a word, and surveys at a distance the envied life of man.”
Thomas Paine, Rights of Man

“Titles are just constructs to help us label one another to quickly assess what someone is worth without thinking too much.”
Rick Remender, Black Science, Vol. 3: Vanishing Point

“Hm? These cherry tomatoes...
they've been dried. Right, Tadokoro?"
"Y-yes, sir! Back home, winter can be really long. In the summer we harvest a lot of vegetables and preserve them so we can have them in winter too. Mostly by sun drying them.
When I was little, I'd help with that part. That's when my Ma -um, I mean, my mother- taught me how to dry them in the oven.
You cut the cherry tomatoes in half, sprinkle them with rock salt and then slowly dry them at a low temperature, around 245* F.

I, um... thought they'd make a nice accent for the terrine..."
"Right. Tomatoes are rich in the amino acid glutamate essential in umami. Drying them concentrates the glutamate, greatly increasing the amount of sweetness the tongue senses.
In Shinomiya's case...
... his nine-vegetable terrine focused on fresh vegetables, with their bright and lively flavors.
But this recette accentuates the savory deliciousness of vegetables preserved over time. Both dishes are vegetable terrines...
... but one centers on the delicacy of the fresh...
... while the other on the savory goodness of the ripe and aged.
They are two completely different approaches to the same ingredient- vegetables!
"Mmm! This is the flavor that warms the soul. You can feel my darling Megumi's kindness in every bite."
"For certain. If Shinomiya is the "Vegetable Magician"...
... I would say Megumi is... a modest spirit who gifts you with the bounty of nature.
a Vegetable Colobuckle!" *A tiny spirit from Ainu folklore said to live under butterbur leaves*
"No, that's not what she is! Megumi is a spirit who brings happiness and tastiness...
a Vegetable Warashi!" *Childlike spirits from Japanese folklore said to bring good fortune*
"Or perhaps she is that spirit which delivers the bounty of vegetables from the snowy north...
a Vegetable Yukinoko!" *Small snow sprites*
"It's not winter, so you can't call her a snow sprite!"
"How come all of you are picking spirits from Japanese folklore anyway?

“Titles were what we made them, whether it was age play or the lifestyle of DD/lb. With or without regression, with or without commitment. As long as it felt right, in one way or another.”
Cara Dee, Breathless

Susan Gilbert-Collins
“She sighed hard and shook her head, realized she was still staring at the same recipe card in her hand. She propped it against the monitor and read again, Elegant French Pork and Beans, by Carmine Grosz of Huron, South Dakota. She scanned the recipe, which called for haricot beans- a not inelegant bean, Olivia thought. Two kinds of sausage, two cuts of pork. Leeks. Well. This looked like a midwesternized cassoulet- definitely better than the usual "Casserole Corner" fare, which was largely made up of recipes containing endless and minute variations on the same hot dishes, issue after issue. For a couple of years there, chicken and broccoli had been all the rage: Chicken Broccoli Divan, Chicken Broccoli 'Divine', Chicken Broccoli Supreme ("Them's fightin' words," Ruby had told Vivian). Chicken Broccoli Surprise, Chicken Broccoli 'Rice' Surprise (David: "Where's the surprise? You've just listed all the ingredients in the title"). Elegant Company Chicken-Broccoli Casserole. "Which is the inelegant part," Olivia had asked over the phone from college, because she was studying ambiguous reference in her Linguistic Description of Modern English class, "the company or the casserole?”
Susan Gilbert-Collins, Starting from Scratch

Liz Braswell
“Often, when tempted to peek into the drawer too early, Wendy could assuage her longing by pulling out the tiny notebook she always kept with her. It had a very slim blue pencil that perfectly fit down the spine, and was nearly full of her neat, enthusiastic words. Well-thumbed pages were titled with things like "Peter Pan and the Pirates and the Unexpected Zeppelin" or "Peter Pan and Tiger Lily versus the Cyclops of the Cerulean Sea." And she had illustrated "Captain Hook Is Taught A Timely Lesson by Peter Pan" with a little picture of a clock she had carefully copied from the mantel, as well as the eyes and nostrils of a fierce crocodile- the rest of whose body she had no hope of depicting accurately, and thus chose to submerge.”
Liz Braswell, Straight On Till Morning

Laurence Galian
“Along with the gradual disappearance of true and profound spirituality, these evil forces want to fill humanity with false illusions and egotism. Human beings under the control of Alien Parasites display attraction to superficial matters such as: titles, award ceremonies, rank, knowledge for knowledge sake and so on. Humanity must rise above the temptations of egoic titles, obsessive study and the pursuit of an endless amount of university degrees and certificates of study.”
Laurence Galian, Alien Parasites: 40 Gnostic Truths to Defeat the Archon Invasion!

“Perhaps we could all just not use groups to identify ourselves and instead we use specialized titles of individual significance, I wish we had something like that, oh what about names?”
C.A.A. Savastano

“If you are an entrepreneur, or a manager in a bank and are afraid to come forward as a musician, just go and google every celebrity in history, from Nikola Tesla to Rabindranath Tagore and many more, they lived their life with 100 different titles such as innovators, writers, philosophers and more, because they never judged themselves”
Anuj Jasani

“People on social like big titles , positions and nice things, but don't want to do the work for them.”

Mindee Arnett
“Titles served their purpose in creating necessary boundaries, reminding people of their place in life. Once she hadn’t realized how vast the chasm was between the highborn and lowborn, but she’d spent the last few years learning better. It was a vast chasm indeed, uncrossable.”
Mindee Arnett, Onyx and Ivory

“The flowers, too. I want to stop and collect some, but Evora says they’re just weeds. Still, I can’t bring myself to understand. What does it matter if they’re weeds? They’re pretty all the same. In fact, I’d call them special compared to flowers. Weeds are stronger. They dominate. They grow everywhere, and some are just as pretty as any flower, but people still toss them aside because of what they are. It’s the title that does it, I think.”
Julia Elizabeth
