"Done with Part 2. This book is as much a history textbook as it is a book about the economy and the modern nation state." Jun 11, 2021 11:33PM

"Well, that was a great ending!

Levin and the Prince kicking Sergey's ass on their discussion about the "Slav question" and how Sergey kept referring to the "feeling of the people" or something even more ambiguous as "you can feel it in the air and in your heart". No, you can't. Shut up, Sergey Ivanovich, you are simply a well-spoken charlatan."

Dante Gabriel Rossetti
“Love, which is quickly kindled in the gentle heart, seized this man for the fair form that was taken from me, the manner still hurts me. Love which absolves no beloved one from loving, seized me so strongly with his charm that, as thou seest, it does not leave me yet”
Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Pre-Raphaelite Poetry: An Anthology

Nassim Nicholas Taleb
“Learn to read history, get all the knowledge you can, do not frown on the anecdote, but do not draw any causal links, do not try to reverse engineer too much -- but if you do, do not make big scientific claims.”
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable

Christina Rossetti
“Better by far you should forget and smile than that you should remember and be sad”
Christina Rossetti, Pre-Raphaelite Poetry: An Anthology

Hunter S. Thompson
“Buy the ticket, take the ride.”
Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Charlotte Brontë
“I skirted fields, and hedges, and lanes till after sunrise. I believe it was a lovely summer morning: I know my shoes, which I had put on when I left the house, were soon wet with dew. But I looked neither to rising sun, nor smiling sky, nor wakening nature. He who is taken out to pass through a fair scene to the scaffold, thinks not of the flowers that smile on his road, but of the block and axe-edge; of the disseverment of bone and vein; of the grave gaping at the end: and I thought of drear flight and homeless wandering --- and oh! with agony I thought of what I left.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
