Shameless Meme-Wagon-Jumping

Via Rob,
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the third* sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.
*Note this originally said fifth. I must've taken three from either the number or line below; but I decided it was easier to change the meme than edit everything else!
(I chose to interpret this as the next three sentences after the third, i.e. sentences 4-6 of the page, but counted the incomplete sentence at the start of the page).

I got "Thus it seems reasonable to say that other things equal one conception of justice is to be preferred to another when it is founded upon markedly simpler general facts, and its choice does not depend upon elaborate calculations in the light of a vast array of theoretically defined possibilities. It is desirable that the grounds for a public conception of justice should be evident to everyone when circumstances permit. This consideration favors, I believe, the two principles of justice over the criterion of utility".

No prizes for anyone guessing where that's from!

As Rob, I can't be bothered tagging people but anyone is welcome to join in.
