[There Had Been A Time, Until 1422, When A Number Of Both Gaelic And Anglo-Irish Students Attended Oxford And Cambridge In England. But Fellow Students Had Complained That Irish Living Together In Large Numbers Sooner Or Later Got Noisy And Violent And There Was No Handling Them. Accordingly, The Universities Imposed A Quota System On Irishman, And Decreed That Those Admitted Must Be Scattered Around Among Non-compatriots: Exclusively Irish Halls Of Residence Were Banned.]

Bob Thurber Quotes

"Ive already got the storm figured out. Some idiot blew up the sun. Some dumb Russian general pushed the wrong button and launched one of their million missiles, or maybe NASA misaimed one of our test rockets. Either way, the sun is gone and were now engaged in a nuclear shootout. Its the end of everything. Batman and Superman arent coming and James Bond doesnt have a trick up his sleeve to save us this time. In a week or a month, well all freeze to death, just like in that Twilight Zone episode where the pretty lady is burning up with fever, dreaming the sun is baking the world dry, when really the Earth has dropped out of orbit, is hurtling further and further away from the sun, rapidly turning into a big ball of ice."

Felix DHerelle Quotes

"...on opening the incubator I experienced one of those rare moments of intense emotion which reward the research worker for all his pains: at first glance I saw that the broth culture, which the night before had been very turbid was perfectly clear: all the bacteria had vanished... as for my agar spread it was devoid of all growth and what caused my emotion was that in a flash I understood: what causes my spots was in fact an invisible microbe, a filterable virus, but a virus parasitic on bacteria. Another thought came to me also, If this is true, the same thing will have probably occurred in the sick man. In his intestine, as in my test-tube, the dysentery bacilli will have dissolved away under the action of their parasite. He should now be cured."
