Mighty is truth. - Wemyss's Appalling Hobby:
From the Party Guilty of Committing 'Gate of Ivory, Gate of Horn'

Mighty is truth.
Or as Vaclav Havel put it, Truth and love must prevail over lies and hatred. That they have done, do, and shall, is his monument that you may see about you. May his soul rest in God; may his work endure.

It's been a bad week for writers -- Russell Hoban, too. At least all of them have seen their words make a difference, and none more so than Havel!

Russell Hoban died? Oh no! :(

I know :-( At least he was quite old, so he had had time to do lots of the things he wanted to do. What a lovely, humane writer he was! At the same time as being hilarious and sometimes rather racy in his urban writing, sort of like a more literary Martin Millar.

And may he rest in truth.
