I acquiesced in this on the grounds that the most anyone can expect from a holiday is a change of agony.Quentin Crisp

At different times and in different places I have come to expect certain books to look a certain way, and, as in all fashions, these changing features fix a precise quality onto a book's definition. I judge a book by its cover; I judge a book by its shape.Alberto Manguel
Whoever believes in a God at all, believes in an infinite mystery; and if the existence of God is such an infinite mystery, we can very well expect and afford to have many of His ways mysterious to us.ichabod spencer

Birth control itself, often denounced as a violation of natural law, is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defectives.

If we are to make racial progress, this development of womanhood must precede motherhood in every individual woman.margaret sanger

The Largest Disservice to LISP is most frequently done whenever a LISP advocate opens his/her mouth. LISP advocates have been, in my limited and biased experience, some of the most arrogant and condescending bastards in the world. (…) I have heard more than one LISP advocate state such subjective comments as, "LISP is the most powerful and elegant programming language in the world" and expect such comments to be taken as objective truth. I have never heard a Java , C++, C, Perl , or Python advocate make the same claim about their own language of choice.
You can't expect to wield supreme power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!

(timeframe: "we expect that he will be released from the mental institution in a decade or two").
