"I still have to learn how to get a handle on the stress side of it, trying to find a happy medium between caring too much and too little." - Coal train engineer Eric Renstrom, in The New Yorker, 10 October 2005
"Puis, doucement, lentement, il mangea la carotte." - Emile Zola, Le Ventre de Paris, 1874.
