"Do you want to know what I think? And I've been around long enough to have formed a few opinions. What your problem is, you all want to be the ocean. But you're not the sea, you're just a raindrop. One of an endless number. If only you'd just accept it, things would be so much easier. Say it with me: I am a drop in the ocean. I am neighbour, nation, north and nowhere. I am one among many and we all fall together.
Or maybe I'm just a rat with wings and I don't know what I'm talking about."
Stephen Kelman, Pigeon English (2011).
