Quote of the Day – Stephen Maturin May 14, 2010Posted by General Zod in Books, Quotes.
This week, I’m re-reading “Post Captain” (the second in the Aubrey-Maturin series) by Patrick O’Brian. The series is a sequence of historical adventures about a British ship captain (Jack Aubrey, RN) and his ship’s surgeon and best friend (Doctor Stephen Maturin) during the Napoleonic Wars.
I love these novels… this is probably the 4th or 5th time I’ve read them… and each time I read this particular volume, this line always brings a smile to my face.
“… wit is the unexpected copulation of ideas.” – Stephen Maturin
I really like that.
