"'Have fun!" ... is my greatest wish for you in all you do." - The Universe
"I brooded by the hour together over the map, all the details of which I well remembered. Sitting by the fire in the housekeeper's room, I approached that island, in my fancy, from every possible direction; I explored every acre of its surface; I climbed a thousand times to that tall hill they call the Spyglass, and from the top enjoyed the most wonderful and changing prospects. Sometimes the isle was thick with savages, with whom we fought; sometimes full of dangerous animals that hunted us; but in my fancies nothing occurred to me so strange and tragic as our actual adventures." - Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island
"Only the heart knows how to find what is precious." - Fyodor Dostoevsky
