"After several false starts, I am finally READING this, and loving it as much as I feared I would. Nearly unputdownable, and genuinely fascinating." Jul 08, 2013 06:57PM

G.K. Chesterton
“Never invoke the gods unless you really want them to appear. It annoys them very much.”
G.K. Chesterton

“Where there is no law, but every man does what is right in his own eyes, there is the least of liberty.”
Henry M. Robert, Robert's Rules Of Order

Pablo Neruda
“Sonnet XVII

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way than this:

where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep. ”
Pablo Neruda

William Makepeace Thackeray
“To endure is greater than to dare; to tire out hostile fortune; to be daunted my no difficulty; to keep heart when all have lost it; to go through intrigue spotless; to forgo even ambition when the end is gained - who can say this is not greatness?”
William Makepeace Thackeray, The Virginians

Douglas Adams
“I think fish is nice, but then I think that rain is wet, so who am I to judge?”
Douglas Adams
