“Never ‘it,’ never ‘it,’ ” Marya chided. “None of God’s creatures is an ‘it,’ even if they’re not a boy or a girl or a mammal or a pretty bird. Call them ‘he’ or she’ and be a little wrong, but never take away their individuality like that.”
Mira Grant, Parasite

Karen Blixen
“I know of a cure for everything: salt water...in one way or the other. Sweat, or tears, or the salt sea.”
Karen Blixen

Mark Forsyth
“But Shakespeare never drank coffee. Nor did Julius Caesar, or Socrates. Alexander the Great conquered half the world without even a café latte to perk him up. The pyramids were designed and constructed without a whiff of a sniff of caffeine. Coffee was introduced to Europe only in 1615. The achievements of antiquity are quite enough to cow the modern human, but when you realize that they did it all without caffeine it becomes almost unbearable.”
Mark Forsyth, The Etymologicon: A Circular Stroll through the Hidden Connections of the English Language

“Rationally speaking, blaming one's behavior on alcohol or drugs is like blaming the ladder by which you descended into a pit, or the staircase that took you down to a cellar, for what you found there.”
Graham Joyce, Some Kind of Fairy Tale

“Both my parents were Irish, and the Irish word for “suntan” is “burn.”
