Favorite Quotes:
'It was the best of Times, it was the worst of Times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way.'
-A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

'To see the World in a grain of sand, And a Heaven in a wild flower. Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an Hour.'
-Augeries of Innocence by William Blake

'We are not amused.'
-Queen Victoria

'KBO-Keep Buggering On.'
-Sir Winston Churchill
