    All womankind, from the highest to the lowest ... love jokes; the difficulty is to know how they choose to have them cut; and there is no knowing that, but by trying, as we do with our artillery in the field, by raising or letting down their breeches, till we hit the mark.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    Human contacts have been so highly valued in the past only because reading was not a common accomplishment.... The world, you must remember, is only just becoming literate. As reading becomes more and more habitual and widespread, an ever-increasing number of people will discover that books will give them all the pleasures of social life and none of its intolerable tedium.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    Your yen two wol slee me sodenly,
    I may the beaute of hem not sustene,
    So woundeth hit through-out my herte kene.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)
