I've been tagged!

Actually, I was tagged a while back, but wasn't paying attention!

This is the deal:

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).

2. Open the book to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the next three sentences.

5. Tag five people.

It's a bit dry, but the nearest book was Rolando Gaete's "Human Rights and the Limits of Critical Reason":

Eichmann's self transcends these properties and as a human being his worth is similar to that of Florence Nightingale. Eichmann, the Nazi mass murderer, is not equal to or of equal worth to Saint Francis because their fundamental choices were very different.

Extravagant as this view sounds, it is at the centre of modern humanism and modern jurisprudence.

I'm going to tag Aubrey, Fidders, Philip Dawdey, Janice and the Anonymous Mr Admin, at Seroxat Secrets!
