Eagles and weasels

Don't let it end like this. Tell them I said something.
           -- Pancho Villa, last words

Eagles may soar, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.
           -- John Benfield

As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life - so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls.
           -- M. Cartmill

Foolish writers and readers are created for each other.
           -- Horace Walpole
