Famous Last Words

Or they deserve to be, at any rate:
The word 'however' is like an imp coiled beneath your chair. It induces ink to form words you have not yet seen, and lines to march across the page and overshoot the margin. There are no endings. If you think there are, you are deluded as to their nature. They are all beginnings. Here is one.
--Hilary Mantel, Bring Up the Bodies

A brilliant ending to a brilliant book.
