    A day in April never came so sweet,
    To show how costly summer was at hand,
    As this fore-spurrer comes before his lord.

    REST IN PEACE. THE MISTAKE SHALL NOT BE REPEATED.
    —Anonymous. Quoted in The Harvest of a Quiet Eye, Alan L. Mackay (1977)

    They have to prove their superiority every day. It’s their one tremendous weakness.
    Edmund H. North, British screenwriter, and Lewis Gilbert. Captain Shepard (Kenneth More)

    It is just as impossible to help reform by conciliating prejudice as it is by buying votes. Prejudice is the enemy. Whoever is not for you is against you.
    John Jay Chapman (1862–1933)

    The hat I was married in,
    will it do?
    White, broad, fake flowers in a tiny array.
    It’s old-fashioned, as stylish as a bedbug,
    but it suits to die in something nostalgic.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    The analogy between the mind and a computer fails for many reasons. The brain is constructed by principles that assure diversity and degeneracy. Unlike a computer, it has no replicative memory. It is historical and value driven. It forms categories by internal criteria and by constraints acting at many scales, not by means of a syntactically constructed program. The world with which the brain interacts is not unequivocally made up of classical categories.
    Gerald M. Edelman (b. 1928)

    A friend of mine spoke of books that are dedicated like this: “To my wife, by whose helpful criticism ...” and so on. He said the dedication should really read: “To my wife. If it had not been for her continual criticism and persistent nagging doubt as to my ability, this book would have appeared in Harper’s instead of The Hardware Age.”
    Brenda Ueland (1891–1985)
