And so several nights a week, with ever-faithful Sergeant Doakes in my rearview mirror, I would stop over at Rita's house after work, play with Cody and Astor, and sit with Rita after the kids were in bed.

Full disclosure: all of my books are the same distance away from me in a bookshelf, lol, so I just grabbed a random one!

In the Middle Ages cardinals and bishops were not only leaders within the church, they were closely involved in the affairs of state: many had been statesmen themselves and had obtained their positions by royal favour.

St Thomas of Hereford was on the sofa by my side, I'm reading it at the moment.

Sambandet (2.28) uttrycker matematiskt ett antal viktiga principer som gäller för system som kan beskrivas på denna form.

A translation might be in order:

The relation (2.28) expresses mathematically a number of important principles concerning systems that can be described on this form.

page 23 sentence 8

(I really want to hear what that complication is)

With the drooping-lidded blue eyes and the spoiled, corrupted baby's face and the bubblegumpink underlip and the butter-yellow crew cut and the fastest '48 Mercury in the South.

(of course, on of the longest sentences in the whole book)

pg. 101 sentence 4

The woman (she turned out to be an intensive-care-unit nurse) replied, "A few minutes ago, you weren't."

Page 43, sentence 2
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré
