Furnish Quotations

Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You'll find what you need to furnish it - memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.
Tad Williams

To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.
