"History is a nightmare
from which I am trying to awake"
— James Joyce in Ulysses

"Be of good cheer, Master Ridley, and play the man, for we shall this day light such a candle in England as I trust by God's grace shall never be put out."
— Hugh Latimer, former Bishop of Worcester, to his friend Nicholas Ridley, former private chaplain to Henry VIII, on the occasion of their being burned at the stake by the Roman Catholic queen Bloody Mary Tudor on October 16, 1555


  1. It’s a recurring nightmare at that.

  2. Recurring indeed. See my entry “Garden Party Revisited” of 6:29 p.m. today. Some things, though (like Sinead’s new album), give me hope of awakening.
