Vorbe intelepte (2)

"The best thing for being sad," replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, "is to learn something. That's the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting.”
--T. H. White, The Sword in the Stone.

oh i really loved that book :) am citit'o odata cand eram pitic, apoi recent - si mi'a placut aproape la fel de tare [desi in alt fel, si mai mult ultima parte, cu lancelot etc].

ai ajuns la aventura din cusca soimilor? :)

vb cu tine mi'am adus aminte de alta chestie in genu asta care'mi placea back then: ultima licorna suna titlul in ro. nu pricepeam nimic, practic, da'mi placea la nebunie. yup i gotta track it down.
