William Makepeace Thackeray
“One of the great conditions of anger and hatred is, that you must tell and believe lies against the hated object, in order, as we said, to be consistent.”
William Makepeace Thackeray, Vanity Fair

Lois McMaster Bujold
“A weapon is a device for making your enemy change his mind.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, The Vor Game

“May the blind see the forms,
May the deaf hear sounds.

May the naked find clothing,
The hungry find food;
May the thirsty find water
And delicious drinks.

May the poor find wealth,
Those weak with sorrow find joy;
May the forlorn find new hope,
Constant happiness and prosperity.

May the frightened cease to be afraid
And those bound be freed;
May the powerless find power,
And may the people think of benefiting one another”

William Goldman
“Who are you?"
"No one of consequence."
"I must know."
"Get used to disappointment.”
William Goldman, The Princess Bride

Lois McMaster Bujold
“Cecil flashed a grin. "Quite. Plus your rather irritating habit of treating your superior officers as your, ah..." Cecil paused, apparently groping again for just the right word.

"Equals?" Miles hazarded.

"Cattle," Cecil corrected judiciously.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, The Vor Game
