“How did I begin investigating the dubious origins of familiar quotations? I will tell you: In the 1990s I developed an enthusiasm for electronic books.”
Garson O'Toole, Hemingway Didn't Say That: The Truth Behind Familiar Quotations

John C. Holt
“This is a book in favor of doing—self-directed, purposeful, meaningful life and work—and against "education"—learning cut off from active life and done under pressure of bribe or threat, greed and fear.”
John Holt, Instead of Education: Ways to Help People Do Things Better: Way to Help People Do Things Better

Elvis Costello
“Paul McCartney was at the microphone singing Ricky Nelson’s “Lonesome Town” to an almost empty Royal Albert Hall. Many of the other performers on the bill were waiting to rehearse but had melted away to the edges of the auditorium to give him some space. Neil Finn was talking to Johnny Marr, Sinéad O’Connor was there with her son, and the emcee for the night, Eddie Izzard, was looking over the running order with Chrissie Hynde. George Michael arrived quietly and was waiting patiently for his turn to sing.”
Elvis Costello, Unfaithful Music and Disappearing Ink

Elvis Costello
“I went ahead and read all of George Bernard Shaw’s plays for my own pleasure, because I liked the cut of his beard.”
Elvis Costello, Unfaithful Music and Disappearing Ink

Mia Couto
“The greatest misfortune for a poor country is that, instead of producing wealth, it produces rich people. But rich people without wealth. In fact, it would be better to call them moneyed rather than rich: a rich person is one who possesses the means of production. A rich person is someone who generates money and provides jobs. A moneyed person is someone who quite simply has some cash. Or rather, he thinks he has. For, in reality, it’s the cash that has him.”
Mia Couto, Pensativities: Selected Essays
