File 1.13

Even if all you remember about Casaubon is his Key to all Mythologies, you have remembered a powerful symbol for busy futility, and if you remember that his stillborn summa was "as endless as a scheme for joining the stars" you have equipped yourself with a pretty good line the next time you make an unassisted attempt to update your laptop.
Clive James, TLS May 27, 2005.
