Based on a genuine quotation from the essay 'Old Mortality', "Books were the proper remedy: books of vivid human import, forcing upon their minds the issues, pleasures, busyness, importance and immediacy of that life in which they stand; books of smiling or heroic temper, to excite or to console; books of a large design, shadowing the complexity of that game of consequences to which we all sit down, the hanger-back not least.'
I was at a friend's house, and her little brother was playing Halo with his friends. I told them I loved that game, and they said I couldn't play because I was a girl. I asked for a controller. ... I pwned their little butts.
