Quoted: The Witches of New York

He shook his head. “A skeptic is only interested in being right. I’m interested in finding the truth.”

“Even if there’s a chance your theories are wrong?”

“Especially then, because it means I might be on my way to discovering something new.”

What is the fear? It is something to do with death and time and age. Simply: I am eighteen in my mind I am eighteen and if I do nothing if I stand still nothing will change. I will be eighteen always. For always. Time will stop. I’ll never die. Very banal, this fear. Everyone has it these days.

 

William Shakespeare’s Star Wars by Ian Doescher

shakespearesstarwars_doescherWhen you’re a fan of the Bard and a fan of the Wars, there’s nothing to do but to read this book. Peppered with insightful asides, well-crafted Shakespearean insults, and elaborate illustrations (see below), this book/play/novelization, written in perfect iambic pentameter (the English major in me is whooping appreciatively), actually gave me a better understanding of the movie. Not to mention a few good laughs. This one gets a huge recommendation from me. READ IT. Readitreaditreadit.

No. 23 on my challenge. Though I don’t remember this particular scene from the movie. Mayhap it occurred behind closed doors.
