“Negligence is the rust of the soul, that corrodes through all her best resolves”
Owen Felltham

“A great proportion of the wretchedness which has embittered married life, has originated in a negligence of trifles”
Thomas Sprat

 “When a man's life is destroyed or damaged by some wound or privation of soul or body, which is due to other men's actions or negligence, it is not only his sensibility that suffers but also his aspiration toward the good. Therefore there has been sacrilege towards that which is sacred in him.”
Simone Weil

 “Success produces confidence; confidence relaxes industry, and negligence ruins the reputation which accuracy had raised.”
Ben Jonson

Motto

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
