21. "I leave a white and turbid wake;pale waters, paler cheeks, where'er I sail. The envious billows sidelongswell to whelm my track; let them; but first I pass. Yonder, by theever-brimming goblet's rim, the warm waves blush like wine. The gold browplumbs the blue. The diver sun --slow dived from noon, --goes down; my soulmounts up! she wearies with her endless hill. Is, then, the crown too heavythat I wear? this Iron Crown of Lombardy. Yet is it bright with many a gem; i, the wearer, see not its far flashings; but darkly feel that i wear that, that dazzlingly confounds. 'Tis iron --that I know--not gold. 'Tis split, too --that I feel; the jagged edge galls me so, my brain seems to beat against the solid metal; aye, steel skull, mine; the sort that needs no helmet in the most brain-battering fight!"
Author: Herman Melville
22. "Olaf hielt sich keineswegs für etwas Besonderes; seine Heavy-Metal-Kutte und die schwarzen T-Shirts mit grellbunten Aufschriften trug er nicht aus einem Grund, den man vor zehn oder zwanzig Jahren in den Kategorien von Identitätsstiftung, Sozialisierung und Jugendkultur erfasst hätte, sondern weil sie zu der Musik gehörten, die er mochte, und weil andere Klamotten ihm nicht gefielen. Aber 'Divergenz' bedeutete 'Auseinanderstreben', und Olaf strebte auseinander.Zwischen anderen Menschen und vor allem innerhalb der so genannten Klassengemeinschaft fühlte er sich wie ein Europäer unter Japanern: Alle sahen gleich aus, betrachteten einen als Gaijin, und zum Schluss erfuhr man, dass sie Koreaner waren. [...] er wusste nicht, worüber er mit ihnen reden sollte, und wunderte sich an manchen Tagen darüber, dass sie überhaupt dieselbe Sprache verwendeten wie er. Seine Unfähigkeit, sich als einer von ihnen zu fühlen, war Divergenz - und in deprimierten Momenten 'Inkompatibilität'."

A rare thing indeed."
Author: Mark Morford

Making a fuss about cards and heavy metal and going on about Dungeons and Dragons stuff because it's got demon gods in it is like guarding to door when it is really coming up through the floorboards. Real dark forces... aren't dark. They're sort of gray, like Mr. Grimm. They take all the color out of life; they take a town like Blackbury and turn it into frightened streets and plastic signs and Bright New Futures and towers where no one wants to live and no one really does live. The dead seem more alive than us. And everyone becomes gray and turns into numbers and then, somewhere, someone starts to do arithmetic..."
