It was an old pain returning to find that William Thornhill, felon, was waiting under the skin of William Thornhill, landowner.

A man’s heart was a deep pocket he might turn out and be amazed at what he found there.

A woman's heart must be of such a size and no larger, else it must be pressed small, like Chinese feet; her happiness is to be made as cakes are, by a fixed recipe.
~ Marian Evans (George Eliot)

And when a woman's will is as strong as the man's who wants to govern her, half her strength must be concealment.

If I was a woman who'd been to a ball,
Been hailed as a princess by one and by all;
Would I start weeping like a bathtub overflowing?
And carry on as if my home were in a tree?
Would I run off and never tell me where I'm going?
Why can't a woman be like me?

~ Professor Higgins

Men and women can never understand each other. Both want something else: the man the woman, the woman the man.

in the evening when her work is done
she descends from the mountain
and her hair takes on the sunset
and it makes it easy for me to forget

she speaks a different language
she speaks a different language
but i seem to understand

language as the technology of human extension, whose powers of division and separation we know so well, may have been the tower of babel by which men sought to scale the highest heavens.

exile is terrible to those who have, as it were, a circumscribed habitation; but not to those who look upon the whole globe but as one city.

Here, there was a gathering of lower-rise blocks, four storeys high, along with a few rows of terraced houses.
“The houses were built for pensioners,” Rebus explained. “Something to do with keeping them within the community.”
“Nice dream, as Tom Yorke would say.”
That was Knoxland, all right: a nice dream. Plenty more like it elswhere in the city. Their architects would have been so proud of the scale drawings and cardboard models. Nobody ever set out to design a ghetto, after all.

It can hardly be a coincidence that no language on earth has ever produced the expression 'as pretty as an airport.'
