    Talk ought always to run obliquely, not nose to nose with no chance of mental escape.

    And in a disused shed in Co. Wexford,
    Deep in the grounds of a burnt-out hotel,
    Among the bathtubs and the washbasins
    A thousand mushrooms crowd to a keyhole.
    —Derek Mahon (b. 1941)

    You must work and do good, not be lazy and gamble, if you wish to earn happiness. Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction.... I can’t understand people who don’t like work ...
    —Anne Frank (1929–1945)
