"Dreaming of tourmaline is supposed to insure success through superior knowledge but there seems to be no evidence that the residents of tourmaline mining areas in Maine or California, where such dreams are particularly common, are any better off as a result." -- John Sinkankas (1971)

"A mine is a hole in the ground, owned by a liar."  -- Mark Twain (?)
