"He who is sick of London is sick of life."
— From a suicide note
"There's a hole in the world,
Like a great black pit,
And the vermin of the world,
And its morals aren't worth,
What a pig could spit,
And it goes by the name of London."
Mike Stamford: What about you, just staying in town till you get yourself sorted?
John Watson: I can't afford London on an army pension.
Mike Stamford: And you couldn't bear to be anywhere else.
