Don't be sad, don't be angry, if life deceives you Submit to your grief -- your time for joy will come, believe me.Alekandr Sergeyevick Pushkin
In a way the CID man was pretty lucky, because outside the hospital the war was still going on. Men went mad and were rewarded with medals.

An educated man ... is thoroughly inoculated against humbug, thinks for himself and tries to give his thoughts, in speech or on paper, some style.Alan Simpson
