(urth) Quotable Wolfe

    One thing I love about Wolfe is his prose.  His choice of words, 
their cadence, their compact power.  OTOH, I can't think of many quotes 
off the top of my head.   I am not sure Wolfe *is* quotable.  It's more 
the tapestry than the thread.

    Do people have:

        Favorite Severian quotes?

        Favorite Wolfe quotes?

I do have some favorite quotes, but they're from short stories.  I'll 
have to get my copy of "Endangered Species" instead of trying to cobble 
them from memory.
