„I like people to go away from a Queen show feeling fully entertained, having had a good time.“

—  Freddie Mercury British singer, songwriter and record producer 1946 - 1991
Context: I like people to go away from a Queen show feeling fully entertained, having had a good time. I think Queen songs are pure escapism, like going to see a good film - after that, they can go away and say that was great, and go back to their problems. I don't want to change the world with our music. There are no hidden messages in our songs, except for some of Brian's. "The Man Who Would Be Queen" in Melody Maker (2 May 1981).

„Hence buildings made of these kinds of wood last for an unending period of time.“

—  Vitruvius, livro De architectura
De architectura (The Ten Books On Architecture) (~ 15BC), Book II, Context: The hornbeam... is not a wood that breaks easily and is very convenient to handle. Hence the Greeks call it "zygia," because they make of it yokes for their draught animals... Cypress and pine are also just as admirable; for although they... are apt to warp when used in buildings... they can be kept to a great age without rotting because the liquid contained within their substances has a bitter taste which by its pungency prevents the entrance of decay or of those little creatures which are destructive. Hence buildings made of these kinds of wood last for an unending period of time. Chapter IX, Sec. 12
