from Beckett's Murphy

Cooper did not know what had happened to set him free of those feelings that for so many years had forbidden him to take a seat or uncover his head, nor did he pause to inquire. He placed his ancient bowler crown upward on the step, squatted high above it, took careful aim through his crutch, closed his eye, set his teeth, flung his feet forward into space and came down on his buttocks with the force of a pile ram. No second blow was necessary.

- Samuel Beckett, Murphy

Thesis draft is due tomorrow. Turning it in had better feel as awesome as Cooper squashing his hat.
