Three-Day Quote Challenge: Day Three

I was tagged by Estprophet518 to do a three-day quote challenge. And I like challenges, and I also like quotes, so I figured why not?

The idea is to post three quotes each day for three days. Here’s day three.


“Sigismund-August relapsed into despair and insomnia. He locked himself into his castle at Knyszyn near the Lithuanian border and refused to receive his senators. He died on 7 July 1572, surrounded by a motley company of quacks, astrologers and witches, in a room hung in black.” – Norman Davies, Vanished Kingdoms 

On Changing The World

<<Tu étais un héros et moi un excentrique, mais cela revient au même, tu comprends ? L’un et l’autre, nous pensions être capables de changer le monde qui nous entourait. Nous étions tous les deux frappés par la même malédiction.>> – Selden Edwards, L’Incroyable Histoire de Wheeler Burden

… which, translated, means:

“You were a hero and I an eccentric, but that amounts to the same thing, you see? Each of us thought ourselves capable of changing the world which surrounded us. We were both struck by the same curse.”
