Quote of the day, Nov. 7

Henning Mankell, from The Man Who Smiled (English version, 2005)

“He had been in the police force for more than twenty-five years. No matter what happened in the years to come, those year would be the backbone of his life, nothing could change that. Nobody can ask to have their life declared invalid, and demand that the dice be thrown afresh. There is no going back. The question was whether there was any way forward.”
