Wear dark clothes after 6 p.m. Eat fresh fish for breakfast when available. Avoid kneeling in unheated stone churches. Ecclesiastical dampness causes prematurely gray hair. Fear tastes like a rusty knife and do not let her into your house. Courages tastes of blood. Stand up straight. Admire the world. Relish the love of a gentle woman. Trust in the Lord.

John Cheever U.S. writer, 1912-1982

The Wapshot Chronicle ch. 37 (1957)
