Other sources include Clausewitz on war, Ken Dodd on Freud, William Blake on angels, Julie Burchill on sex ("If what you want is cuddling, you should buy a puppy"), Ian Rankin on life ("People talk about life as a river, but it's not like that at all, it's a series of punctuated moments") and Philip K. Dick on reality ("Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away").
