     - Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

     - John Coltrane

The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning.
     - George Baker, 1877 - 1965

Don't wake me for the end of the world unless it has very good special effects.
     - Roger Zelazny, 1937 - 1995
