- Immemorial enjoyment is the most solid of all titles. Tindal, C.J., In the Matter of the Serjeants-at-Law (1840)
- There is no heroic poem in the world but is at bottom a biography, the life of a man; also it may be said, there is no life of a man, faithfully recorded, but is a heroic poem of its sort, rhymed or unrhymed.

Systems, scientific and philosophic, come and go. Each method of limited understanding is at length exhausted. In its prime each system is a triumphant success: in its decay it is an obstructive nuisance.

April is coming.
Probably the best known literary quote about it is of course T.S. Eliot’s.
April is the
cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.

BOB DYLAN "IT'S ALRIGHT MA (I'M ONLY BLEEDING)"
You lose yourself, you reappear
You suddenly find you got nothin' to fear
Alone you stand with nobody near
When a trembling distant voice unclear
Startles your sleeping ear to hear
That somebody thinks they really found you.

Science has gotten way out of hand, I feel.
Look at what they are up to now:
“ scientists plan to reach temperatures only a few degrees above absolute zero on the International Space Station, allowing them to study challenging aspects of quantum mechanics.”
