| "Then what is magic for?" Prince Lir demanded wildly. "What use is|
wizardry if it cannot save a unicorn?" He gripped the magician's shoulder
hard, to keep from falling.
Schmendrick did not turn his head. With a touch of sad mockery in
his voice, he said, "That's what heroes are for."
"Yes, of course," he [Prince Lir] said. "That is exactly what heroes
are for. Wizards make no difference, so they say that nothing does, but
heroes are meant to die for unicorns."
-- Peter Beagle, "The Last Unicorn"
|I just got my PRINCE bumper sticker ... But now I can't remember WHO he is ...|
|It is only with the heart one can see clearly; what is essential is|
invisible to the eye.
-- The Fox, 'The Little Prince"
|Lucas is the source of many of the components of the legendarily reliable|
British automotive electrical systems. Professionals call the company "The
Prince of Darkness". Of course, if Lucas were to design and manufacture
nuclear weapons, World War III would never get off the ground. The British
don't like warm beer any more than the Americans do. The British drink warm
beer because they have Lucas refrigerators.
|Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long|
as there is a regular progression of stimuli to get your mental hooks
into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is
a matter of discretion.
-- Corwin, Prince of Amber

|How beautiful are thy feet with shoes, O prince's daughter! the joints of thy|
thighs are like jewels, the work of the hands of a cunning workman. Thy navel
is like a round goblet, which wanteth not liquor: thy belly is like an heap
of wheat set about with lillies.
Thy two breasts are like two young roses that are twins.
[Song of Solomon 7:1-3 (KJV)]
|"'Tis true, 'tis pity, and pity 'tis 'tis true."|
-- Poloniouius, in Willie the Shake's _Hamlet, Prince of Darkness_
