Re: Sapere Aude

Ernest "You ever hunted?"

Gil "Only for a bargain"



Watching "Midnight in Paris" again to check out which part Lea Seydoux performed, and this movie is really such a delight.

Who wouldn't like McAdams, Hiddleston, Cotillard and Sheen? And Wilson is a perfect substitute for Allen

Thank you Woody!

Re: Sapere Aude

Read Doris Lessing's fine introduction of 'Lady Chatterley's Lover'

That novel was a perfect anti war film, which says that England can be redeemed by 'tender fucking'

Lawrence is said to be a genius, really should try to read and finish this novel.

Did anybody know that his eventual wife Frieda was a sex maniac and seduced him within a few minutes of their first meeting And this was while she was married, methink

I now rather like these clothbound recent Penguin Classics Hardcover editions.

Re: Sapere Aude

Clark 187

Frederick the Great was pretty relaxed on sexual matters.

Voltaire tells us about an unusual verdict of his against a sex offender, who had an intercourse with a she-donkey.
He was sentenced to death, but Frederick annulled it and said;

"In my lands one enjoyed freedom of both conscience and penis."

Frederick's guests included French authors who wrote 'l'Art de jouir' and 'l'Art de foutre'

Re: Sapere Aude

Cambridge Introduction to Milton

John Milton wrote pamphlets endorsing divorce and regicide.

Cambridge then urged students to converse in Greek, Latin or Hebrew.

In his magnum opus 'Paradise Lost', he only mentions one contemporary in name; does anybody know?

Re: Sapere Aude

Clark 252-3

Frederick the Great

"All religions are just as good as each other, as long as the people who practise them are honest, and even if Turks and heathens came and wanted to populate this country, then we would build mosques and temples for them"

"He also abolished torture and reduced the number of crimes punishable by death. "
In France, 1766, "one found guilty of blasphemy had his right arm hacked off and tongue torn out before being burned at the stake."

Re: Sapere Aude

A while ago, when I was reading on a bench, a little kid approached me and with his cute voice, asked;

"Are you a stranger?"

I was at a loss..

Re: Sapere Aude

I have the much shorter version but this edition looks really enticing



Oh, and also saw Phil Jackson at the bookstore, he was booksigning.

Re: Sapere Aude

I'm glad Dan Brown mentioned a nice little gem 'Little Romance'
He must've been a fan of Diane Lane

And did you know Quarantine came from Quaranta, 40 days? Venice required incoming ships to
moor off for that time to prevent a spreading of plague..

I need to buy a plague mask
