... And I'm 3/4 through Anathem ~ gawd what a brick! But a 
fascinating read - no coffee yet.

As long as we're discussing quotations,  one of my favorites of 
all time:

"I'm sitting in the smallest room of my house. I have your 
letter before me.
Soon it will be behind me." -- German composer Max Reeger to a 
music critic
who wrote a review of Reeger's work.

Followed closely by:

"Bulshytt: Speech (typically but not necessarily commercial or 
political)
that employs euphemism, convenient vagueness, numbing 
repetition, and other
such rhetorical subterfuges to create the impression that 
something has been
said."  -- Neal Stephenson, writing a dictionary definition in 
his novel
"Anathem."
