Nenče Nenče said: " Rating & reviews reflect the three stories that interested me:

The Harrowing of the Dragon of Hoarsbreath by Patricia A. McKillip
Verdict: ****

Harrowing is as much about atmosphere as it is about story, and McKillip's language -- heightened and tim

Roy Lotz is on page 635 of 933 of Postwar: No other territorial empire in recorded history ever abandoned its dominions so rapidly, with such good grace, and with so little bloodshed as did the Soviet Union. Gorbachev cannot take direct credit: he did not plan it and only hazily grasped its long-term import. But he was the permissive and precipitating cause. It was My. Gorbachev's revolution.

Furious Love by Nancy Schoenberger
In their first deep kiss, in Cleopatra’s boudoir, just after confessing their mutual love, Burton found himself caught up, almost drugged, in her presence. They repeated the scene several times, their kiss lasting longer with each take. Finally, Mankiewicz shouted, “Print it”—but the scene continued. “Would you two mind if I say cut?” he asked again. And then, “Does it interest you that it is time for lunch?” Burton didn’t have a chance.

Roy Lotz is on page 363 of 862 of A History of Western Music: Equal temperament, in which all semitones are equal and all intervals are less than true but acceptable, was proposed as early as the sixteenth century and was eventually embraced by many keyboard players, composers, and organ builders of the Baroque era.

“But as to your writing me that I don’t love you very much, I don’t know whether you’re saying this in earnest or whether I should realise that you’re joking with me. Still, what you say disturbs me. You are measuring a very healthy expression of a wife’s loyalty by the standard of the insincere flattery of well-worn phrases. But I shall love you, my husband. What does it mean to you that you reassure me with those trivial little compliments? Do you want me to believe that you expect me to comb my hair in a stylish fashion for your homecoming? Or to feign adoring looks with a painted face? Let women without means, who worry and have no confidence in their virtue, flutter their eyelashes and play games to gain favour with their husbands. This is the adulation of a fox and the birdlime of deceitful bird hunting. I don’t want to have to buy you at such a price. I’m not a person who lays more stock in words than duty. I am truly your Laura, whose soul is the same one you in turn had hoped for.”

“Wasn't that what religions did? Squint at one another and declare, 'My unprovable belief is better than your unprovable belief. Suck it.”
Laini Taylor, Dreams of Gods & Monsters

Laura Cereta
“I am a scholar and a pupil who has been lulled to sleep by the meagre fire of a mind too humble. I have been too much burned, and my injured mind has accumulated too much passion; for tormenting itself with the defending of our sex, my mind sighs, conscious of its obligation. For all things — those deeply rooted inside us as well as those outside us — are being laid at the door of our sex.

In addition, I, who have always held virtue in high esteem and considered private things as secondary importance, shall wear down and exhaust my pen writing against those men who are garrulous and puffed up with false pride. I shall not fail to obstruct tenaciously their treacherous snares. And I shall strive a war of vengeance against the notorious abuse of those who fill everything with noise, since armed with such abuse, certain insane and infamous men bark and bare their teeth in vicious wrath at the republic of women, so worthy of veneration.”
