8. "The chronicler would abandon any idea of making a detailed report of all the other ills that are afflicting most of the nearly three hundred inmates being kept in this inhumane quarantine, but he could not fail to mention at least two cases of fairly advanced cancer, for the authorities had no humanitarian scruples when rounded up the blind and confining them here, they even stated that the laws once made is the same for everyone and that democracy is incompatible with preferential treatment. As cruel fate would have it, amongst all these inmates there is only one doctor, and an ophthalmologist at that, the last thing we need."
Author: José Saramago

We know how it ends practically before it starts. That's why stories appeal to us. They give is the clarity and simplicity our real lives lack."
Author: Patrick Rothfuss

One could almost believe that on the other end of that hand lay a person of some sort."
Author: Patrick Rothfuss
