Quotes Of YesterYear

I like this particular cycle:

"Attention to health is life's greatest hindrance." - Plato (427?-347? B.C.)

"Plato was a bore." - Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)

"Nietzsche was stupid and abnormal." - Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910)

"I'm not going to get into the ring with Tolstoy." - Ernest Hemingway (1889-1961)

"Hemingway was a jerk." - Harold Robbins

I had a book of quotes with the quote "God Is Dead" by Neitzche. Teh very next quote was "Neitzche was an idiot" by Tolstoy. Thereafter, every quote was by Neitzche was immediately followed by the "Neitzche was an idiot" quote by Tolstoy! I looooove it!

That would be cool (though not completely accurate!) ha!
I read this awesome book years ago about a "meeting" between C.S Lewis and Socrates, where they discussed things like salvation and abortion. It was really insightful.
