Philip Pullman Quote: “They could not have done it alone, but together they did it.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Still, Fritz was an optimist, and Karl was a pessimist, and that makes all the difference in the world.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “I guess you are,” said Lee. “You have a strange way about you, Dr Grumman. You ever spend any time among the witches?” “Yes,” said Grumman. “And among academicians, and among spirits. I found folly everywhere, but there were grains of wisdom in every stream of it. No doubt there was much more wisdom that I failed to recognize. Life is hard, Mr Scoresby, but we cling to it all the same.”
Philip Pullman Quote: “Was I wrong?” “Yes, of course. But you had no choice.” “I must have.” “No, you had to do it.
