John James Audubon

John le Carre

NASA projects often have romantic names that link into a long history of exploration and adventure: Atlantis and Discovery, for example.
Even now, when I try and think of band names just randomly, I'm so thankful that 'fun.' is the name of the band. I never really think twice about it. It is so simple and so easy.

Giada De Laurentiis
I used my captors' names every chance I had. It was intentional, a way of reminding them that I saw them, of pegging them, of making them see me in return.
C. S. Lewis
