‘Never go upstairs empty-handed!’

‘Never ever use the Hippodrome entrance/exit at Leicester Square tube.’

‘Don’t date a dickhead from your hometown – date a dickhead from far away.’

‘Always remember what you owe to others and forget what others owe to you.’

‘If you have the choice between doing something and not doing it, just do it! (As long as it can’t kill you.)’

‘‘Chuck it in the “fuck it” bucket and move on.’
