“Perhaps this is one of the eternal laws of the universe: we never do anything right, and other people always know best about how we should do things, including dying.”
Antti Tuomainen, Man Who Died

“There are moments when, in all its sheer wretchedness, the unfettered embarrassment of middle age can surpass even death.”
Antti Tuomainen, The Man Who Died

“At some point in our lives we make a decision, he thought, a choice that, though we don't understand it at the time, will be final and will define how the years will treat us. it is a fork in the road that we only realise we have crossed much later.”
Antti Tuomainen, Kaivos
