N O V E L S
Scott Westerfeld, The Risen Empire.
"Here on the Lynx, opening a door required a gestural sequence, a tongue click, perhaps even a token of some kind; it was all secret handshakes and magic rings. The grays preserved language for use among humans, as if conversing with the ship would somehow bring it to life." [p. 231.]

Baldesar Castiglione, The Book of the Courtier.
"Therefore the prince must not only be good but also make others good, like the square used by architects, which not only is straight and true itself, but also makes straight and true all things to which it is applied."
Trans. Charls S. Singleton. New York : Anchor Books, 1959. [Il Cortegiano. Venice : Aldine Press, 1528]. p. 307. Doubleday ISBN 0-385-09421-3 (1959)
