    “I am sifting my memories, the way men pan the dirt under a barroom floor for the bits of gold dust that fall between the cracks. It's small mining -- small mining. You're too young a man to be panning memories, Adam. You should be getting yourself some new ones, so that the mining will be richer when you come to age.”

    ― John Steinbeck, East of Eden

    It is the wine that leads me on,
    the wild wine
    that sets the wisest man to sing
    at the top of his lungs,
    laugh like a fool – it drives the
    man to dancing... it even
    tempts him to blurt out stories
    better never told.

    ― Homer, The Odyssey

    “For suddenly, just as the men tried to cross, a fatal bird-sign flashed before their eyes, an eagle flying high on the left across their front and clutching a monstrous bloody serpent in both talons, still alive, still struggling - it had not lost its fight, writhing back to strike it fanged the chest of its captor right beside the throat - and agonized by the bites the eagle flung it away to earth, dashed it down amidst the milling fighters, loosed a shriek and the bird veered off along the gusting wind. The Trojans shuddered to see the serpent glistening, wriggling at their feet, a sign from storming Zeus.”

    ― Homer, Iliad

    It sucked me first, and now sucks thee,
    And in this flea our two bloods mingled be...

    ― John Donne
