Make my ticket a return trip


English author Evelyn Waugh died on this day in 1966. He wrote:

"It is a curious thing that every creed promises a paradise which will be absolutely uninhabitable for anyone of civilized taste."

And also:

"I can see nothing objectionable in the total destruction of the earth, provided it is done, as it seems most likely, inadvertently."
