What kind of printer do you have?

Quotable: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“To the King’s favor quite restored again,
Reynard sets forth with all that lordly train,
Upon his pious journey to be shriven,—
Much the same road that Lawyers go to Heaven;—”

—from Reynard the Fox

Trumpertantrum

Elsa and I were discussing portmanteaus the other night (the word, not the trunk). Hangry is one of my favorites. But I think this may be one of the finest: Trumpertantrum.

I assumed one of the media outlets had coined the phrase, but it turns out to be attributed directly to Ted Cruz (or, perhaps, his writers).

Aeschylus

“Valerius Maximus wrote that he [Aeschylus] was killed outside the city by a tortoise dropped by an eagle which had mistaken his head for a rock suitable for shattering the shell of the reptile. Pliny, in his Naturalis Historiæ, adds that Aeschylus had been staying outdoors to avoid a prophecy that he would be killed by a falling object.”

This event was cited in N.D. Wilson’s quite enjoyable Notes From The Tilt-A-Whirl: Wide-Eyed Wonder in God’s Spoken World.
