„That the climate has always changed. It has never been static. In the past it has seen extremes hotter and colder than what we experience today. So change is normal.“

„It has been a damned serious business“

—  Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington British soldier and statesman 1769 - 1852
Context: It has been a damned serious business... Blucher and I have lost 30,000 men. It has been a damned nice thing — the nearest run thing you ever saw in your life. … By God! I don't think it would have been done if I had not been there. Remark to Thomas Creevey (18 June 1815), using the word nice in an older sense of "uncertain, delicately balanced", about the Battle of Waterloo. Creevy, a civilian, got a public interview with Wellington at headquarters, and quoted the remark in his book Creevey Papers (1903), in Ch. X, on p. 236; the phrase "a damned nice thing" has sometimes been paraphrased as "a damn close-run thing."
