To be on foot in the United States is only immoral, not illegal. Unless you’re a bum, of course. It’s just like in England, really: you can wander abroad and lodge in the open air so long as you've a home to go to; it’s only an offence if you haven’t one – on the same principle that ensures you cannot borrow money from a bank unless you don’t need any.

--Kyril Bonfiglioli, Don't Point That Thing At Me, the first in his Charlie Mortdecai series

“You’re a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling though space. Fear nothing.” ~ Unknown source, tried to find who originated this but couldn't. I love it, though.

This quote comes from Wives and Daughters, by Elizabeth Gaskell, set in the early 1800 hundreds in which there were virtually no social supports. The male speaker, a widower with an adolescent daughter in need of a mother has just proposed marriage to Mrs Fitzpatrick, a widow also with an adolescent daughter who is struggling to survive by running a school.

There! he had done it - whether it was wise or foolish- he had done it! but he was aware that the question as to its wisdom came into his mind the instant that the words were said past recall.

She hid her face in her hands.

"Oh! Mr Gibson," she said; and then, a little to his surprise, and a great deal to her own, she burst into hysterical tears: it was such a wonderful relief to feel that she need not struggle any more for a livelihood.

Why is it when one man builds a wall, the next man immediately needs to know what's on the other side? Tyrion, Game of Thrones

Mending Wall

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun;
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.
The work of hunters is another thing:
I have come after them and made repair
Where they have left not one stone on a stone,
But they would have the rabbit out of hiding,
To please the yelping dogs.
....
He will not go behind his father’s saying,
And he likes having thought of it so well
He says again, ‘Good fences make good neighbors.'

Robert Frost, 1874 - 1963
