Quote of the day:

"Under the tongue root a fight most dread, and another raging, behind, in the head."

This line, translated into Sanskrit, forms the chant in John Williams's "Duel of the Fates" theme from STAR WARS: THE PHANTOM MENACE. It is from Robert Graves' translation of the Celtic poem "Cad Goddeu" ("The Battle of the Trees").
