I will be adopting a handful of these clever ideas compiled by The Daily Buzz (HERE for the first set, HERE for the second).

Finish every day and be done with it.

You have done what you could;

So Eva stood close to Romer in the doorway of the shop on Frith Street as he shooted and waved at the passing cars moving down the dark street, hoping one of them might be a taxi.

We’re out of luck‘, he said, turning, to find Eva standing very close to him, her face lifted.

I’m in no hurry‘, she said.

He reached for her and kissed her.

— William Boyd (Restless)
