It's also far easier to move from place to place once it's on-site.

If you only write what is already known, then your writing might become tired and predictable.

Since I can't decide which one really is closer -- one is easier to pick up because it's on top, but the book beneath is closer in a way because it's larger -- you get both.   :-)

Tarik ibn Zayid would conquer that city and slay the King after the sorriest fashion and sack the city and make prisoners of the women and boys therein and get great loot.
Collected Fictions, Jorge Luis Borges

Technically, that was the second-closest book to me. The first was Mathematics: From the Birth of Numbers by Jan Gullberg. And yes, I'm a total dork.

From Magician's Gambit by David Eddings:

"If you succeed, things will be all right again; if you don't, everything will keep going wrong, and the purpose for which the universe came into existence will fail."

((Sounds like heavy plot, but I still have to read the second book of the series first >.<))

"He was free, not just alone but free, free of entanglements of people, free of encumbrances of property, utterly free."

The Great Influenza, by John M. Barry, which I'm rereading thanks to all the talk in the news lately of H1N1.  It's a very well-researched, well-written book, focusing mainly on the terrible 1918 outbreak.

Consciousness.

With the sentence before and the one after...

What is the soul? Consciousness. The more awareness, the deeper the soul, and when such essence overflows, you feel a sacredness around.

I cheat.  :P
