"Small letters, typically Penguin not caring about its readers' vision. 1st chapter links perfectly with the books of Jean-Laurent Del Socorro (French Wars of Religion), Fabien Cerutti, Edward De Maesschalck and Géza Gárdonyi (Sterne von Eger), for example." Aug 09, 2022 03:42AM

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Groucho Marx
“Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read.”
Groucho Marx, The Essential Groucho: Writings For By And About Groucho Marx

Marcus Tullius Cicero
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Frank Zappa
“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

Maurice Switzer
“It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.”
Maurice Switzer, Mrs. Goose, Her Book
