„I stuffed their mouths with gold.“

—  Aneurin Bevan Welsh politician 1897 - 1960

Around 1948, Nye Bevan engineered a notorious "bribe" to win the support of hospital consultants. The father of the NHS made his famous declaration after he brokered a deal in which consultants were paid handsomely for their NHS work while allowing them to maintain private practices.

„Watch your step. Keep your wits about you; you will need them.“

—  Michel Faber, livro The Crimson Petal and the White

First lines, Ch. 1
The Crimson Petal and the White (2002)
Contexto: Watch your step. Keep your wits about you; you will need them. This city I am bringing you to is vast and intricate, and you have not been here before. You may imagine, from other stories you've read, that you know it well, but those stories flattered you, welcoming you as a friend, treating you as if you belonged. The truth is that you are an alien from another time and place altogether.
