„The wild sea roars and lashes the granite cliffs below,
And round the misty islets the loud strong tempests blow.“

— Mary Howitt, The Sea-Fowler, reported in Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).

„Stupidity is not my strong point.“

— Paul Valéry French poet, essayist, and philosopher 1871 - 1945
Context: Stupidity is not my strong point. I have seen many persons; I have visited several countries; I have taken part in various enterprises without liking them; I have eaten nearly every day; I have had women. I can now recall a few hundred faces, two or three great spectacles, and the substance of perhaps twenty books. I have not retained the best nor the worst of these things: what could stay with me did. Variant translations: Stupidity is not my strong suit.
