    • In our house we saw every game and enjoyed the World Cup very  much.  I thl nk France will win but before it all began I was going to have a bet on Croatia.  Um.            
    • [...] Thus far, Friend! did I, not used to make
      A present joy the matter of a song,
      Pour forth that day my soul in measured strains
      That would not be forgotten, and are here
      Recorded: to the open fields I told
      A prophecy: poetic numbers came
      Spontaneously to clothe in priestly robe
      A renovated spirit singled out,
      Such hope was mine, for holy services.
      My own voice cheered me, and, far more, the mind's
      Internal echo of the imperfect sound;
      To both I listened, drawing from them both
      A cheerful confidence in things to come. [...]   William Wordsworth, The Prelude, Book I
    • I was interested in this novel until about  half-way through when I found myself checking how many pages to the end of the chapter. Not a good sign. 
    • There's music in the sighing of a reed; 
           There's music in the gushing of a rill; 
      There's music in all things, if men had ears: 
      Their earth is but an echo of the spheres.    from Don Juan - canto XV by Lord George Gordon Byron
