„Poetry? It's a hobby.
I run model trains.
Mr Shaw there breeds pigeons.
It's not work. You don't sweat.
Nobody pays for it.
You could advertise soap.“

What The Chairman Told Tom, from Odes II:6 (1965)

„It is natural for a train to run on its tracks.“

—  Kalki Krishnamurthy writer 1899 - 1954

Sivakozhundu of Tiruvazhundur (1939)
Contexto: It is natural for a train to run on its tracks. We get into a train because we believe that it will do that. But once in a while the train runs off the rails, and there’s an accident. Those who don’t actually witness such a happening can say, “No train will run off the rails, it is unnatural for it to do so”.
