“If he failed, it was with honor.
In his name we all dwell
in Camelot

Long after the towers fall,
and merlins nest
in the ruined stones.”

Harleen by Stjepan Šejić
An AMAZING version of Harley Quinn's origin. The text and the illustrations are both top notch, and, better yet, compliment each other wonderfully. There are a lot of pictures of two different faces split and placed side by side to show two differ..." Read more of this review »

Timeless Tales added a status update: In 2000, DC Comics created a villain called Queen of Fables, who represents all evil in folklore. She can turn fiction into reality and use what she conjures against heroes. She commands fairy tale creatures and can transform Manhattan into a magical forest.

“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate parts, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.”
Plato, The Symposium

Stephen Fry
“For the world seems never to offer anything worthwhile without also providing a dreadful opposite.”
Stephen Fry, Mythos: The Greek Myths Retold

Madeline Miller
“Name one hero who was happy."
I considered. Heracles went mad and killed his family; Theseus lost his bride and father; Jason's children and new wife were murdered by his old; Bellerophon killed the Chimera but was crippled by the fall from Pegasus' back.
"You can't." He was sitting up now, leaning forward.
"I can't."
"I know. They never let you be famous AND happy." He lifted an eyebrow. "I'll tell you a secret."
"Tell me." I loved it when he was like this.
"I'm going to be the first." He took my palm and held it to his. "Swear it."
"Why me?"
"Because you're the reason. Swear it."
"I swear it," I said, lost in the high color of his cheeks, the flame in his eyes.
"I swear it," he echoed.
We sat like that a moment, hands touching. He grinned.
"I feel like I could eat the world raw.”
Madeline Miller, The Song of Achilles

Alexandre Dumas
“I don’t think man was meant to attain happiness so easily. Happiness is like those palaces in fairy tales whose gates are guarded by dragons: we must fight in order to conquer it.”
Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

Neil deGrasse Tyson
“For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you.”
Neil deGrasse Tyson
