Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn" by Tad Williams -

"'Why has this happened? Has everyone gone mad?'

'Everyone was mad already, my lady,' Cadrach said with a strange, sorrowful smile. 'It is merely that the times have brought it out in them.'"

"When we are electing government officials, it is not stupid to ask yourself, “If a plague broke out, do I think this person could navigate the country through those times, on a spiritual level, but also on a pragmatic one? Would they be able to calmly solve one problem, and then another one, and then the next one? Or wouhld bodies pile up in the streets?"

"At least the World will end, an event anticipated with great joy by many. It will end very soon, but not in the year 2000, which has come and gone. From that I conclude that God Almighty is not heavily into Numerology."

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong's notable achievement, I give you a quote from an unnamed but famous feminist:

"If we can send a man to the moon; why can't we send them all"

My favorite quote was not from a book. Flip Wilson heard this in an airport and used it in his stand up.
"If you can fly this plane 3000 miles in the dark and find LA you can find my luggage."

Every internship ever:

From "Early Riser: A Novel" by Jasper Fforde -

"‘I need a new Novice with a good memory to train up. Good career path. Exciting too. Lots of challenges. Bit of cash, extra pudding. Medium to high risk of death.’

‘What was the last bit again?’

‘Extra pudding.’

‘And after that?'

‘Coffee and mints?’

‘I meant on your list.’

‘Oh – medium to high risk of death.’"

"You - any of you - are a mathematical long shot. Simply being born You is a very far chance. In fact there has never been another You.

Welcome to the biological pinnacle of your many ancestors' achievements. Imagine their sighs of disappointment & just be glad nobody has blown up the world yet this week."

A Winter's Tale, Act 3, Scene 2. Shakespeare

Officer. You here shall swear upon this sword of justice,
That you, Cleomenes and Dion, have1345
Been both at Delphos, and from thence have brought
The seal'd-up oracle, by the hand deliver'd
Of great Apollo's priest; and that, since then,
You have not dared to break the holy seal
Nor read the secrets in't.1350
Cleomenes. [with Dion] All this we swear.
Leontes. Break up the seals and read.
Officer. [Reads]. Hermione is chaste;
Polixenes blameless; Camillo a true subject; Leontes
a jealous tyrant; his innocent babe truly begotten;1355
and the king shall live without an heir, if that
which is lost be not found.
Lords. Now blessed be the great Apollo!
Hermione. Praised!
Leontes. Hast thou read truth?1360
Officer. Ay, my lord; even so
As it is here set down.
Leontes. There is no truth at all i' the oracle:
The sessions shall proceed: this is mere falsehood.
