Quote of the Day – Stephen Maturin May 14, 2010

Posted by General Zod in Books, Quotes.

post_captainThis 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.
