"In order that the mind may not be taxed, moreover, by the manifold and confused reading of so many such things, and in order to prevent the escape of something valuable that we have read, heard, or discovered through the process of thinking itself, it will be found very useful to entrust to notebooks ... those things which seem noteworthy and striking."

[Commonplace books: Thomas Farnaby, 17th-century]

Sex in this series is like a sandbox. Its presence here is as unreal as its absence was on network television forty years ago.

[Sex and the City: Lee Siegel, The New Republic]
