    There’s something about the dead silence of an office building at night. Not quite real. The traffic down below is something that didn’t have anything to do with me.
    John Paxton (1911–1985)

    For beauties from worth arise
    Are like the grace of deities,
    —Sir John Suckling (1609–1642)

    See, in the Navy, during the war, I got used to the idea that something might happen to me, I might not make it. Well, I also got used to the idea that my wife and children were safe at home, they’d be all right no matter what. But what I didn’t reckon with was that in this, this kind of a monstrous war, something might happen to them, and not to me. Well it did, and I can’t, I can’t cope with it.
    —John Paxton (1911–1985)
