The great thing about Glasgow is that if there's a nuclear attack it'll look exactly the same afterwards.
First he wrought, and afterward he taught.
If it's all instruction, you get annoyed with it and bored, and you stop reading. If it's all entertainment, you read it quite quickly, your heart going pitty-pat, pitty-pat. But when you finish, that's it. You're not going to think about it much afterward, apart from the odd nightmare. You're not going to read that book again.
If you wanna give me an award, I'll take it. Just don't make me go to the party afterwards.
In the end, my story, in Iraq and afterward, is about more than just killing people or even fighting for my country. It's about being a man. And it's about love as well as hate.

An author ought to write for the youth of his own generation, the critics of the next, and the schoolmaster of ever afterwards.
F. Scott Fitzgerald
A man is a fool if he drinks before he reaches the age of 50, and a fool if he doesn't afterward.

Never say no when a client asks for something, even if it is the moon. You can always try, and anyhow there is plenty of time afterwards to explain that it was not possible.
Richard M. Nixon
An Englishmen thinks seated; a Frenchmen standing; an American pacing, an Irishman, afterwards.
