„Tis strange,-but true; for truth is always strange;
Stranger than fiction: if it could be told,
How much would novels gain by the exchange!
How differently the world would men behold!“

—  George Gordon Byron, Don Juan

„Strange reading? It is meant to be. The world is full of romantic, macabre, improbable things which would never do in works of fiction.“

But it is their own; I have the evidence. Scraps and Morsels (1960).
