My legs are programmed to trot briskly and my arms to pump up and down like pistons, but I force myself to stroll past the stalls and pavement cafes.

And smile to myself. For the first time in a long time, I can, quite literally, smell the coffee." - Alexandra Potter

And then you lie down and shut up forever. Lots of little deaths until the last big one." - Neil Gaiman
