„An example is often a deceptive mirror,
And the order of destiny, so troubling to our thoughts,
Is not always found written in things past.“

—  Pierre Corneille, Cinna

L'exemple souvent n'est qu'un miroir trompeur;
Et l'ordre du destin qui gêne nos pensées
N'est pas toujours écrit dans les choses passées.
Auguste, act II, scene i.

„I was often humiliated to see men disputing for a piece of bread, just as animals might have done.“

—  François Arago French mathematician, physicist, astronomer and politician 1786 - 1853

"The History of My Youth", p. 55.
Biographies of Distinguished Scientific Men (1859)
Kontext: I was often humiliated to see men disputing for a piece of bread, just as animals might have done. My feelings on this subject have very much altered since I have been personally exposed to the tortures of hunger. I have discovered, in fact, that a man, whatever may have been his origin, his education, and his habits, is governed, under certain circumstances, much more by his stomach than by his intelligence and his heart.

„When you're a student or whatever, and you can't afford a car, or a plane fare, or even a train fare, all you can do is hope that someone will stop and pick you up.“

—  Douglas Adams English writer and humorist 1952 - 2001

Statement of 1984, as quoted in Don't Panic: The Official Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Companion (1988) by Neil Gaiman, p. 2
Kontext: When you're a student or whatever, and you can't afford a car, or a plane fare, or even a train fare, all you can do is hope that someone will stop and pick you up.
At the moment we can't afford to go to other planets. We don't have the ships to take us there. There may be other people out there (I don't have any opinions about Life Out There, I just don't know) but it's nice to think that one could, even here and now, be whisked away just by hitchhiking.

„Well fare she, well! As perfect beauty fares;
And those high places, that are beauty's home.“

—  Lionel Johnson English poet 1867 - 1902

"Oxford"
Kontext: p>Ill times may be; she hath no thought of time:
She reigns beside the waters yet in pride.
Rude voices cry: but in her ears the chime
Of full, sad bells brings back her old springtide. Like to a queen in pride of place, she wears
The splendour of a crown in Radcliffe's dome.
Well fare she, well! As perfect beauty fares;
And those high places, that are beauty's home.</p
