From the novel "Whatever Love Means"Edit
- ...action restarting action: all we need to reverse inertia is some sense of consequence - some sense that beyond this occurrence there is another, and that they are linked, some sense that life has chapters.
- ...he felt frustrated, his sense of fate and direction subverted by banalities - the frustration of the man who, having thought himself following his destiny, finds he is actually on the A318 to New Malden.
- That's the thing about your destiny: how are you supposed to know it when it arrives? How are you supposed to recognise it from the random life?
