Orichalcum is a haunting, evocative word to drive my inner vision and feeling half-mad with desire for je ne sais quoi.

"We cannot approach beauty. Its nature is like opaline doves'-neck lustres, hovering and evanescent. Herein it resembles the most excellent things, which all have this rainbow character, defying all attempts at appropriation and use. What else did Jean Paul Richter signify, when he said to music, 'Away! away! thou speakest to me of things which in all my endless life I have not found, and shall not find.'"

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Gehan Federation had done the same thing, building up fleets and armies and material stockpiles as though she were already at war.

And, in doing so, her citizens had voluntarily forfeited the very thing they thought they were fighting for—their freedom.

"The ego wants to be right all the time. And it loves conflict with others. It needs enemies, because it defines itself through emphasizing others as different. Nations do it, religions do it. If you identify with one particular religion, you need the nonbeliever — the other — to feel your own sense of identity strongly."

- Eckhart Tolle

"This election not about who you would want to have a beer with. It's about who you would rather have sex with. And as it looks, people want to have sex with Barrack Obama."

Michael Moore

This man Moore can only be recovered at the local upholstery factory. Watched part of that televised interview. What a slob. He said 30 million Americans are idiots who think Adam and Eve rode on dinosaurs, but he doesn't seem to think he belongs to some portion of that 30 million number he came up with. I can see why Bradbury was vehemently opposed to his using the Fahrenheit title. The guy is in need of fundamental basics of whatever will pop him to at least semi-normal.

He's right.

I hope you're not calling him a slob just because he's overweight. I don't get the connection at all except for the fact that you obviously don't like him. I have no reason to believe that he doesn't bathe on a regular basis.

Once a year is a "regular basis".
Slob, though? I don't know. I think he's actually more of a twit.

Not when we're talking about a bath!

That opinion I will accept. I don't mirror it, but I accept it as a fair opinion. But "slob" is just a derogatory term with no meaning in this case.

If we believe the page Nard linked to, I'm afraid we also have to believe this page from the same source:
