Anais Nin (1903 - 1977)

"Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity."

It is God, who demands absolute love. anyone who, in demanding a person's love, thinks this must be proved by the latter's becoming lukewarm towards all that was hitherto dear to him, is not simply an egoist but a fool, and anyone demanding such a love would simultaneously sign his own death-warrant in so far as his life is bound up in this love he craves.

The Meaning of Liff (By Douglas Adams and John Lloyd; an excerpt)

BONKLE (n.)
Of plumbing in old hotels, to make loud and unexplained noises in the night, particularly at about five o'clock in the morning.

DUNTISH (adj.)
Mentally incapacitated by severe hangover.

FORSINAIN (n. archaic)
The right of the lord of the manor to molest dwarves on their birthdays.

KIBBLESWORTH (n.)
The footling amount of money by which the price of a given article in a shop is less than a sensible number, in a vain hope that at least one idiot will think it cheap. For instance, the kibblesworth on a pair of shoes priced at £19.99 is 1p.

KURDISTAN (n.)
Hard stare given by a husband to his wife when he notices a sharp increase in the number of times he answers the phone to be told, 'Sorry, wrong number.'
