„Discipline is, in a manner, nothing else but the art of inspiring the soldiers with greater fear of their officers than of the enemy.“

—  Claude Adrien Helvétius French philosopher 1715 - 1771

De l'esprit or, Essays on the Mind, and Its Several Faculties (1758)
Kontext: Discipline is, in a manner, nothing else but the art of inspiring the soldiers with greater fear of their officers than of the enemy. This fear has often the effect of courage: but it cannot prevail against the fierce and obstinate valor of people animated by fanaticism, or warm love of their country.

„Art consists of the persistence of memory.“

—  Stephen King, kniha Misery

Misery (1987)
Kontext: Writers remember everything... especially the hurts. Strip a writer to the buff, point to the scars, and he'll tell you the story of each small one. From the big ones you get novels. A little talent is a nice thing to have if you want to be a writer, but the only real requirement is the ability to remember the story of every scar.
Art consists of the persistence of memory.
