Umberto Eco dead at 84.
When men stop believing in God, it isn't that they then believe in nothing: they believe in everything.

A dream is a scripture, and many scriptures are nothing but dreams.

Fear prophets and those prepared to die for the truth, for as a rule they make many others die with them, often before them, at times instead of them.

Nothing gives a fearful man more courage than another's fear.

The real hero is always a hero by mistake; he dreams of being an honest coward like everybody else.

I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren't trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.

Books are not made to be believed, but to be subjected to inquiry.

Translation is the art of failure.

I would define the poetic effect as the capacity that a text displays for continuing to generate different readings, without ever being completely consumed.

The comic is the perception of the opposite; humor is the feeling of it.

Shit
I shall miss him. Sad

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Happens to all of us, but even when we see it coming, there is never a good time for it.
