#6474I dote on his very absence.
-- William Shakespeare, "The Merchant of Venice"
#6475I fell asleep reading a dull book, and I dreamt that I was reading on,
so I woke up from sheer boredom.
#6476I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
-- Mark Twain
#6477I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a
week sometimes to make it up.
-- Mark Twain, "The Innocents Abroad"
#6478I reverently believe that the maker who made us all makes everything in New
England, but the weather. I don't know who makes that, but I think it must be
raw apprentices in the weather-clerks factory who experiment and learn how, in
New England, for board and clothes, and then are promoted to make weather for
countries that require a good article, and will take their custom elsewhere
if they don't get it.
-- Mark Twain
#6479I think we are in Rats' Alley where the dead men lost their bones.
-- T.S. Eliot
#6480I was gratified to be able to answer promptly, and I did. I said I didn't know.
-- Mark Twain
#6481I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I
will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all
Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they
teach. Oh, tell me that I may sponge away the writing on this stone!
-- Charles Dickens
#6482"I wonder", he said to himself, "what's in a book while it's closed. Oh, I
know it's full of letters printed on paper, but all the same, something must
be happening, because as soon as I open it, there's a whole story with people
I don't know yet and all kinds of adventures and battles."
-- Bastian B. Bux
#6483I'll burn my books.
-- Christopher Marlowe
