“It was Miss Murdstone who was arrived, and a gloomy-looking lady she was; dark, like her brother, whom she greatly resembled in face and voice; and with very heavy eyebrows, nearly meeting over her large nose, as if, being disabled by the wrongs of her sex from wearing whiskers, she had carried them to that account. She brought with her two uncompromising hard black boxes, with her initials on the lids in hard brass nails. When she paid the coachman she took her money out of a hard steel purse, and she kept the purse in a very jail of a bag which hung upon her arm by a heavy chain, and shut up like a bite. I had never, at that time, seen such a metallic lady altogether as Miss Murdstone was.”
― Charles Dickens, David Copperfield

A cincophrenic poet called
a meeting of all five of
him at which four of the
most powerful of him voted
to expel the weakest of him
who didn't dig it, coughing
poetry for revenge, beseech-
ing all horizontal reserves
to cross, spiral, and whirl.

“The 1143-year-long war had begun on false pretences and only because the two races were unable to communicate.

Once they could talk, the first question was 'Why did you start this thing?' and the answer was 'Me?”

Well OK.

So this is #30

“Whenever women have insisted on absolute equality with men, they have invariably wound up with the dirty end of the stick. What they are and what they can do makes them superior to men, and their proper tactic is to demand special privileges, all the traffic will bear. They should never settle merely for equality. For women, "equality" is a disaster.”
― Robert A. Heinlein

I guess sometimes the past just catches up with you, whether you want it to or not. Usually, death row was called "the last mile"; we called ours "the Green Mile" — the floor was the color of faded limes. ~ Stephen King

"The first time I was star-struck, the object of my affection was a glamorous Eastern Airlines stewardess. She had towering blond hair, frosted blue eyelids, and was well into her twenties. I was eight. We were thrown together when my parents put me on a flight by myself to Lawrenceville, Georgia, to visit my wealthy grandparents." Possible Side Effects by Augusten Burroughs

Many philosophers have argued that time itself is an illusion. Consider this: time consists of past, present and future. Even though we have records of the past and memories of certain events that have taken place, it can no longer be considered to exist. The future on the other hand has yet to unfold and therefore does not exist either. This leaves the present which is defined as the dividing line between past and future. Surely the ‘here and now’ exists. But although we ‘feel’ that this line is steadily sweeping through time gobbling up the future and converting it into past, it is nevertheless just a line and as such does not have any thickness. The present, therefore, is of zero duration and cannot have a real existence either. (Black Holes, Wormholes and Time Machines by Jim Al-Khalili)

And he knew he would not go."

She now sits down in a quiet empty room thinking how lonely she feels and how sad that they had to leave so soon. But at least she has her cigarettes. But it had been a long day. She washes up, brushes her teeth, gets dressed for bed, and has one last cigarette.
