“We shall tell it at length, in precise and thorough detail –
for when was a story short on diversion or long on boredom
simply because of the time and space required for the telling?”

Thomas Mann, The Magic Mountain

“It may help to understand human affairs to be clear that most of the great triumphs and tragedies of history are caused, not by people being fundamentally good or fundamentally bad, but by people being fundamentally people.”

Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, Good Omens
