understand his own meaning.
-- George D. Prentice
|#6517||Many enraged psychiatrists are inciting a weary butcher. The butcher is|
weary and tired because he has cut meat and steak and lamb for hours and
weeks. He does not desire to chant about anything with raving psychiatrists,

|#6520||Mind! I don't mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is|
particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself,
to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade.
But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands

-- William Shakespeare, "The Merchant of Venice"

My dear Bagginses and Boffins, and my dear Tooks and Brandybucks,

Bracegirdles, Goodbodies, Brockhouses and Proudfoots. Also my good
Sackville Bagginses that I welcome back at last to Bag End. Today is my
one hundred and eleventh birthday: I am eleventy-one today!"
-- J. R. R. Tolkien
|#6523||My only love sprung from my only hate!|
Too early seen unknown, and known too late!
