Schopenhauer Quote

If your abilities are mediocre, modesty is an honesty, but if you possess great talents it is hypocrisy - quoted in the Private Lives of Albert Einsten.

The Once and Future King

There would be a day - there must be a day - when he would come back to Gramarye with a new Round Table which had no corners, just as the world had none - a table without boundaries between the nations who would sit to feast there. The hope of making it would lie in culture. If people could be persuaded to read and write, not just to eat and make love, there was still a chance they might come to reason.
