"All my life I have lived and behaved very much like the sandpiper - just running down the edges of different countries and continents, 'looking for something'."
"I know what I know, says the almanac."
"The armored cars of dreams, contrived to let us do so many a dangerous thing."
"The bight is littered with old correspondences."
"The pigs stuck out their little feet and snored."
"The whole shadow of Man is only as big as his hat."
