Quote of the Day
First, I want to pay tribute to Diana myself. She was an exceptional and gifted human being.

Queen Elizabeth II

The concept of two people living together for 25 years without a serious dispute suggests a lack of spirit only to be admired in sheep.
A. P. Herbert

John le Carre
Celerity is never more admired than by the negligent.
