Notable quotables

meme from kalyx:

Go here and keep hitting random quotes until you get five that resonate with you, and post them to your journal.

Praising what is lost makes the remembrance dear.
      William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

It is a fine thing to establish one's own religion in one's heart, not to be dependent on tradition and second-hand ideals. Life will seem to you, later, not a lesser, but a greater thing.
      D. H. Lawrence (1885 - 1930)

Any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae.
      Kurt Vonnegut (1922 - 2007)

The absence of flaw in beauty is itself a flaw.
      Havelock Ellis (1859 - 1939)

I have come to the conclusion that my subjective account of my motivation is largely mythical on almost all occasions. I don't know why I do things.
      J. B. S. Haldane (1892 - 1964)
