We know not

“We have an unknown distance yet to run, an unknown river to explore. What falls there are, we know not; what rocks beset the channel, we know not; what walls ride over the river, we know not. Ah, well! we may conjecture many things.”
~ John Wesley Powell

“I’ve never quite worked out how to do holidays. I’ve got a house in France which I suppose is a kind of holiday house. But it’s really only so I can go on drawing when I get there. I’m never far away from the feeling that I want to be getting on with something.”
~ Quentin Blake


“I haven’t done much comedy; I would love to. I love doing dramatic roles, but I’d love to do comedy. I think it would be refreshing.”

To Johnny Depp/Captain Jack Sparrow, Grand Protector of Pupps

The Pirate King: Oh, better far to live and die / Under the brave black flag I fly, / Than play a sanctimonious part / With a pirate head and a pirate heart. / Away to the cheating world go you, / Where pirates all are well-to-do; / But I’ll be true to the song I sing, / And live and die a Pirate King. / For I am a Pirate King! / And it is, it is a glorious thing / To be a Pirate King!
~ The Pirates of Penzance by Gilbert & Sullivan
