"Its not the men in my life, its the life in my men!" - or - "is that a gun in your pocket or are you pleased to see me?"  Both by Mae West

I first fell in love with the word "Melange", in FH's Dune book skald.

“Poetry has the virtue of being able to say twice as much as prose in half the time, and the drawback, if you do not give it your full attention, of seeming to say half as much in twice the time.”

(btw I started adding cinnamon to my tea after reading Dune. It's actually pretty good! But, ah, don't heat your tea in the microwave if you add cinnamon first. No idea why, but it explodes. Nothing dangerous, just very, very messy.)

I like to have a martini,
Two at the very most.
After three I'm under the table,
after four I'm under my host.

"Such as it is, the press has become the greatest power within the Western World, more powerful than the legislature, the executive and judiciary. One would like to ask: by whom has it been elected, and to whom is it responsible?" --Alexander Solzhenitsyn
