You can't eat a book, right, but books have saved my life more often than sandwiches. And they've saved your life...

12. "Ma l'incontro con la Laide gli aveva lasciato uno strano turbamento. Forse anche per il ricordo della tipa incontrata in corso Garibaldi. Come se qualcosa lo avesse toccato dentro. Come se quella ragazza fosse diversa dalle solite. Come se fra loro due dovessero succedere molte altre cose. Come se lui ne fosse uscito differente. Come se Laide incarnasse nel modo più perfetto e intenso il mondo avventuroso e proibito. Come se ci fosse stata una predestinazione. Come quando uno, senza alcun particolare sintomo, ha la sensazione di stare per ammalarsi, ma non sa di che cosa né il motivo. Come quando si ode dabbasso il cigolio del cancello e la casa è immensa, ci abitano centinaia di famiglie e all'ingresso è un continuo andirivieni eppure all'improvviso si sa che ad aprire il cancello è stata una persona la quale viene a cercarci."

28. "... the General Cemetery's unwritten motto is All the Names, although it should be said that, in fact, these three words fit the Central Registry like a glove, because it is there that all the names are to be found, both those of the dead and those of the living, while the cemetery, given its role as ultimate destination and ultimate depository, has to content itself only with the names of the dead. This mathematical evidence, however, is not enough to silence the keepers of the General Cemetery who, confronted by what they call their apparent numerical inferiority, usually shrug their shoulders and argue, With time and patience everyone ends up here, the Central Registry, from this point of view, is merely a tributary of the General Cemetery."

"If the ghost that haunts the towns of Ypres and Arras and Albert is the staturory British Tommy, slogging with rifle and pack through its ruined streets to this well-documented destiny ‘up the line', then the ghost of Boulogne and Etaples and Rouen ought to be a girl. She's called Elsie or Gladys or Dorothy, her ankles are swollen, her feet are aching, her hands reddened and rough. She has little money, no vote, and has almost forgotten what it feels like to be really warm. She sleeps in a tent. Unless she has told a diplomatic lie about her age, she is twenty-three. She is the daughter of a clergyman, a lawyer or a prosperous businessman, and has been privately educated and groomed to be a ‘lady'. She wears the unbecoming outdoor uniform of a VAD or an army nurse. She is on active service, and as much a part of the war as Tommy Atkins."
