Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.
The poem in my home page are the opening lines of the poem 'The Little House of Lost Play' by Tolkien. Among all the verses I chose, this was the only one I never doubted about. The compass rose was designed by Liza Daly who graciously allowed me to use it here.
The verses in the Babylon 5 page, come from 'Ulysses' by Lord Alfred Tennyson. A lovely poem concerning my favourite mythological hero, it was chosen not only because the suitability of the specific verses, but also because it was the poem most often repeated within the series itself, Tennyson being Commander Sinclair's favourite poet.
The verses in the Tolkien page come from a poem I read in Tolkien's 'The Notion Club Papers' slightly altered and adapted by him from The Seafarer.
The "My Own Writings" quote are the opening verses of 'Kalevala', the Finnish national epic of creation. I have not read it in its entirety, but the little I've read enchanted me.
The quote in the interactive fiction page comes from the SF show "Doctor Who". It fit, I liked it, I used it.
The verses in the Gargoyles page, come from the poem 'Acquainted With The Night' by Robert Frost... A quote from William Blake's 'The Tyger' was the runner-up... Also:
The picture for the Online Comics page is The Big Triangle created by Scott McCloud as a tool for thinking about comics and art in general. More information about it and what it means here. The verses comes from the song 'My Mirage' by Doug Ingle.
The quote in the Harry Potter page comes from Shakespeare's 'The Tempest'. The one in the Isaac Asimov page comes from 'Hamlet' (by the same author :-)
Finally, the verses in the Links page, come from the well known song/poem appearing in the first book of Lord of the Rings.
