Because hypocrisy stinks in the nostrils one is likely to rate it as a more powerful agent for destruction than it is.
Eighty percent of flavor comes from your nose, including a set of internal nostrils. When you chew food and hold it in your mouth, the gases that are released goes into these nostrils. People who wolf their food are missing some of the flavor. Mary Roach
The day I don't attend to my nostrils is the day I will have forsworn that world and become a different person. Someone otherwise preoccupied. Someone who couldn't care less what anyone thinks of his appearance - someone for whom the material life has lost its appeal. Howard Jacobson

More memories in the bank, less synaptic firepower with which to access them. Gravity has started to show its inexorable pull. Hampton Sides
