Arm Yourself To The Hilt

Arm Yourself To The Hilt

That’s what comes from being well read. One already knows all the verses and the tricks of fate. ~Carlos Ruiz Zafón Experience, it is said, is the best teacher.

The Terrorists Are Among Us

Once the business of food and home has been solved, the next thing humans strive for are reasons to feel superior to others, and resources with which to demonstrate their superiority. ~Carlos Ruiz Zafón One, two, I am better than you.
