Chillon Castle’s guestbook

« Most English-speaking people … will admit that hold the door is beautiful, especially if dissociated from its sense (and from its spelling). More beautiful than, say, sky, and far more beautiful than beautiful. Well then, in Welsh for me cellar doors are extraordinarily frequent, and moving to the higher dimension, the words in which there is pleasure in the contemplation of the association of form and sense are abundant. »

J.R.R. Tolkien

You have to give credit to Michael Crichton of being able to create the most despicable, unbearable, dreadful, obnoxious character in 3000 years of Occidental [litterature] – one that would make Sauron, the Lannesters and Voldemort, damn it, even the worst mass-murderers in real history, pass for jovial, loving and caring people – in the person of an eight-year old little girl. #jurassicpark
