Eric Knight quotes ~
• “Rain or shine, the dog was always there, waiting for a boy - one of dozens who would come pelting across the concrete playground - but for the dog, the only one who mattered.”
• “Generally, when a man raised an expecially fine dog, some day it would stop being a dog and instead would become something on four legs that was worth money.”

FYI ~ the title of This Above All is from the character Polonius “...This above all: to thine ownself be true, ...” in Hamlet by William Shakespeare.

Milan Kundera
b. 4-1-1929; Brno, Czechoslovakia

Milan Kundera is best known as the author of The Unbearable Lightness of Being, which challenges Friedrich Nietzsche’s concept of eternal recurrence (the universe and its events have already occurred and will recur ad infinitum).

Kundera's alternative is that each person has only one life to live, and that which occurs in that life, occurs only once shall never occur again — thus the “lightness” opposed to either the tremendous burden or great benefit of eternal recurrance, depending on one's perspective.

Dramatist Thomas Kyd, the author of The Spanish Tragedy, was one of the most important figures in the development of Elizabethan drama.

Thomas Kyd quotes ~
• “Oh eyes, no eyes, but fountains fraught with tears; O life, no life, but lively form of death; Oh world, no world, but mass of public wrongs.”
• “In time the savage bull sustains the yoke, / In time all haggard hawks will stoop to lure. / In time small wedges cleave the hardest oak, / In time the flint is pierced with softest shower.”
