The Silmarillion. It's been a while. A great while.
The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  
and the sad silent song made the hour twice as long,
as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

Nice. Love how they used a few things so far from that work for THE HOBBIT movie.

"Would you know the single craving of my blood - the craving that burns in me more fiercely than hunger in a starving beast of prey - the one desire, to gratify which, I would desparately dare and defy all men? Listen then! A nectar, bitter-sweet - like the last kiss on the lips of a discarded mistress - is the secret charm of my existence; green as the moon's light on a forest pool it glimmers in my glass; eagerly I quaff it, and, as I drink, I dream. Not of foolish things. No! Not of dull saints and smooth landscapes in heaven and wearisome prudish maids; but of glittering bacchantes, nude nymphs in a dance of hell, flashing torrents and dazzling mountain-peaks, of storm and terror, of lightning and rain, of horses galloping, of flags flying, of armies marching, of haste and uproar and confusion and death!"

ACD rocks. Good choice. As does the PBS(BBC) Sherlock.

Sipping a Blanchette reading The Diary of Adam and Eve.

Quotes by Remy de Gourmont:

 

“Man has made use of his intelligence, he invented stupidity.”

 

“Women still remember the first kiss after men have forgotten the last.”

 

“Man associates ideas not according to logic or verifiable exactitude, but according to his pleasure and interests. It is for this reason that most truths are nothing but prejudices.”

 

“The terrible thing about the quest for truth is that you find it.”

 

“Of all the sexual aberrations, perhaps the most peculiar is chastity.”

 

“Life is a series of sensations connected to different states of consciousness.”

 

“Industry has operated against the artisan in favor of the idler, and also in favor of capital and against labor. Any mechanical invention whatsoever has been more harmful to humanity than a century of war.”

 

“Two elements are needed to form a truth - a fact and an abstraction.”

 

“The whole effort of a sincere man is to erect his personal impressions into laws.”


"Anti-alcoholics are unfortunates in the grip of water, that terrible poison, so solvent and corrosive that out of all substances, it has been chosen for washing and scourings, and a drop of water, added to a clear liquid like Absinthe, muddies it."
