Quentin Durward - Sir Walter Scott (I knew a bloke called Quentin Durward once. Sadly, he died young. Big C got him.)
It seems to me immensely unlikely that mind is a mere by-product of matter. For if my mental processes are determined wholly by the motions of atoms in my brain I have no reason to suppose that my beliefs are true....hence I have no reason for supposing my brain to be composed of atoms.

The Story of Little Black Sambo - Helen Bannerman (Children's book from 1899, widely excoriated nowadays for its perceived racism - the name "Sambo", and his portrayal as a golliwog - ironically it was, for the time, an advance, since Sambo was portrayed as both clever and brave.)
