“I think, for the rest of my life, I shall refrain from looking up things. It is the most ravenous time-snatcher I know. You pull one book from the shelf, which carries a hint or a reference that sends you posthaste to another book, and that to successive others. It is incredible, the *number* of books you hopefully open and disappointedly close, only to take down another with the same result.”

—Carolyn Wells (1862–1942)

“And catch the gleaming of a *random* light,

That tells me that the ship I seek is passing, passing.”

—Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872–1906)
