Nevertheless, he is considered by the great majority of philosophers a paragon of wisdom.” ~ Bertrand Russell
  55. “Franny has the measles, for one thing. Incidentally, did you hear her last week? She went on at beautiful length about how she used to fly all around the apartment when she was four and no one was home.

She said she knew she was able to fly because when she came down she always had dust on her fingers from touching the light bulbs.” ~ J. D. Salinger
