Harry Graham
“Little Willie, full of glee,
Put radium in grandma's tea.
Now he thinks it quite a lark
To see her shining in the dark.”
Harry Graham, Ruthless Rhymes for Heartless Homes and More Ruthless Rhymes

W.H. Auden
“Lovers of small numbers go benignly potty,
Believe all tales are thirteen chapters long,
Have animal doubles, carry pentagrams,
Are Millerites, Baconians, Flat-Earth-Men.

Lovers of big numbers go horribly mad,
would have the Swiss abolished, all of us
Well-purged, somatotyped, baptised, taught baseball:
They empty bars, spoil parties, run for Congress.”
W.H. Auden, Auden: Poems

I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.
“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
Jorge Luis Borges

Flann O'Brien
“When things go wrong and will not come right,
Though you do the best you can,
When life looks black as the hour of night,
Flann O'Brien, At Swim-Two-Birds

William Shakespeare
“As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods.
They kill us for their sport.”
William Shakespeare, King Lear
