    Hilary Mantel Wolf Hall

    Next sentence is: "Any well-conected pricess whom he thinks might give him a son.

    (Yes it is about Henry VIII's time)
    "The farther he goes the more good it does me. I don’t want philosophies, tracts, dogmas, creeds, ways out, truths, answers, nothing from the bargain basement. He is the most courageous, remorseless writer going and the more he grinds my nose in the sh1t the more I am grateful to him..."
    -- Harold Pinter on Samuel Beckett

    Oh bravo! I admire your bravery. That book is just teeming with little nasty treasures like these.

    And leave it with a Discontent

    Deeply moved with such a generous gift, which included a large shot pouch and finely wrought brass powder flask, Simon promptly-and with Butlers approval-named the weapon Jacob, feeling that in times to come it would stand by him as the miller himself had done.

    Allan Eckart, the Frontiersmen

    Whew, it just had to be that sentence!
    He prayed best, who loveth best
    All things both great and small;
    For the dear God who loveth us,
    He made and loveth all.

    ~Samuel Taylor Coleridge

    And continues to uphold them with His gaze.
