“Can you see the power emotion has to distort our outlook?
Makes you wonder,
did you have a bad day,
or did you make it a bad day.”
“A tragedy is a tragedy, and at the bottom, all tragedies are stupid.
Give me a choice and I’ll take A Midsummer Night’s Dream over Hamlet every time.
Any fool with steady hands and a working set of lungs can build up a house of cards and then blow it down,
but it takes a genius to make people laugh.”
[ Stephen King ]
“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory.
If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy,
don’t we consider it his duty to escape?
. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul,
if we’re partisans of liberty,
then it’s our plain duty to escape,
and to take as many people with us as we can!”
[ J. R. R. Tolkien ]
