Side 3 - Cowards die many times before their deaths ; The valiant never taste of death but once. Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, It seems to me most strange that men should fear; Seeing that death, a necessary end, Will come when it will come.
Side 8 - Mississippi will be only a mile and threequarters long, and Cairo and New Orleans will have joined their streets together, and be plodding comfortably along under a single mayor and a mutual board of aldermen. There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.
Side 1 - I've developed a new philosophy ... I only dread one day at a time.
Side 15 - September 2001, the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington had immediate repercussions in South Asia. The Pakistani government agreed to assist the United States in 'a war against terrorism' which came right to its borders with neighbouring Afghanistan.
