“Sometimes I think the city is naturally conducive to coincidences in the same way that Plains states like Nebraska and Oklahoma are conducive to twisters, in the same way that mountain lakes are conducive to lightning.”
Robert Sullivan, Rats: Observations on the History & Habitat of the City's Most Unwanted Inhabitants

“The next day, an American soldier who saw morning arrive in Princeton described the snowless but brittle battlefield as something beautiful: “bright, serene, and extremely cold, with a hoar frost which bespangled every object.”
Robert Sullivan, My American Revolution

“Ingesting poison, fighting for food, being attacked by a larger rat or beaten with a toilet plunger: these are everyday rat dangers that make the life expectancy of the rat in the city approximately one year.”
Robert Sullivan, Rats: Observations on the History and Habits of the City's Most Unwanted Inhabitants
