remembering hitchens on the daily mail
'i am not fighting or battling cancer, it is fighting me. my two assets were my pen and my voice.'
'lost 14lbs without trying. thin at last. but i don't feel lighter because walking to the fridge is like a forced march.
'all the sleep-aids and blissful dozes seem somehow a waste of life - plenty of future time in which to be unconscious.'
'now so many tributes that it also seems that rumours of my life have also been greatly exaggerated.'
'lived to see most of what's going to be written about me: this too is exhilarating, but hits diminishing returns when i realise how soon it, too will be "background."'
