If we must choose between them,
It is far safer to be feared than loved.

The absence of flaw in beauty is itself a flaw.
-Havelock Ellis (1859-1939)
In taking revenge, a man is but even with his enemy; but in passing it over, he is superior.
-Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626)
Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.
There used to be a real me, but I had it surgically removed.
-Peter Sellers (1925-1980)
