"The essential thing is not to become inured. For habits are deadly. Even if it is for the hundredth time, you must encounter each thing as if you have never known it before. This is next to impossible, I realize, but it is an absolute rule."
-- Ivan Chtcheglov

"No matter how you look at it, we'll never get out of this alive."
-- Jean-Michel Mension
