Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce, they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now...you tell me what you know!

...For they eat the bread of wickedness,
And drink the wine of violence.


She stood silently looking out into the great sallow distances of sea bottom, as if recalling something, her yellow eyes soft and moist...

"What is love of one's country; is it hate of one's uncountry? Then it's not a good thing.

.... I love the hills of the Domain of Estre, but that sort of love does not have a boundary-line of hate. And beyond that, I am ignorant, I hope."

"You were right, old hoss; you were right!"

(The ONLY words spoken - and these in admitting too late his tragic error - by the young man, "a new-comer in the land, a chechaquo", as he traversed the frozen trail in the backwoods of the Yukon, in Jack London's "To Build A Fire.")


BTW, the classic ending:
"Later, the dog whined loudly. And still later it crept close to the man and caught the scent of death. This made the animal bristle and back away. A little longer it delayed, howling under the stars that leaped and danced and shone brightly in the cold sky. Then it turned and trotted up the trail in the direction of the camp it knew, where were the other food-providers and fire-providers."
