"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]

Please send me your last pair of shoes, worn out with dancing, as you mentioned in your letter, so that I might have something to press against my heart.

[dance, love: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, quote]
