„Watch your thoughts, for they will become actions. Watch your actions, for they'll become… habits. Watch your habits for they will forge your character. Watch your character, for it will make your destiny.“

„Watch your step. Keep your wits about you; you will need them.“

—  Michel Faber, book The Crimson Petal and the White

First lines, Ch. 1
The Crimson Petal and the White (2002)
Context: Watch your step. Keep your wits about you; you will need them. This city I am bringing you to is vast and intricate, and you have not been here before. You may imagine, from other stories you've read, that you know it well, but those stories flattered you, welcoming you as a friend, treating you as if you belonged. The truth is that you are an alien from another time and place altogether.
