“The dero of the caves are the greatest menace to our happiness and progress; the cause of many mad things that happen to us, even so far as murder. Many people know something of it, but they say they do not. They are lying. They fear to be called mad, or to be held up to ridicule. Examine your own memory carefully. You will find many evidences of outside stim, some good, some evil–but mostly evil.”
writing in I Remember Lemuria
This is one in a series of quotations.
I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years. I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations. I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people. In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author. As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say. These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on.
Hope you enjoy them!
