The ‘G.O.P.’ took this from The Pocket Guide to Cycling, a book of Practical Hints, by Ernest M. Bowden, B.A. (Hay Nisbet & Co).
Be very careful to avoid giving offence to any one. Cyclists at the best are bound to be a nuisance to a good many people; and while they themselves have a good deal to put up with, it is not to be denied that they are often less careful to avoid causing annoyance to others than they might be.
From the 1994 Donmar warehouse production of The ThreePenny Opera - a slight variation from the staple performance of a Street Singer singing the Ballad of Mack the Knife, the person closest to him (his oldest whore, Jenny, played here by Tara Hugo) gives the song a chilling new take to it.

Jean-Baptiste Lully : Te Deum - Dies Irae
아무도 들을것이라고 생각하지 않지만 이 레퀴엠Dies irae(day of wrath)을 올립니다 장 밥티스트 룰리는 이탈리아 태생의 프랑스 궁정 음악가로 당시 오페라 작곡과 공연에 대한 독점권을 부여받은 권세가이기도 했습니다. 태양의 춤 le Roi Danse라는 영화로도 잘알려져있습니다. 원래 에라토반인 이 음반은 현재는 Apex반으로 나와있고 웹상에서 구할수있는 이미지가 에이펙스반 밖에 없어서 대신 올립니다
“The real damage is done by those millions who want to ‘survive.’ The honest men who just want to be left in peace. Those who don’t want their little lives disturbed by anything bigger than themselves. Those with no sides and no causes. Those who won’t take measure of their own strength, for fear of antagonizing their own weakness. Those who don’t like to make waves—or enemies. Those for whom freedom, honour, truth, and principles are only literature. Those who live small, mate small, die small. It’s the reductionist approach to life: if you keep it small, you’ll keep it under control. If you don’t make any noise, the bogeyman won’t find you. But it’s all an illusion, because they die too, those people who roll up their spirits into tiny little balls so as to be safe. Safe?! From what? Life is always on the edge of death; narrow streets lead to the same place as wide avenues, and a little candle burns itself out just like a flaming torch does. I choose my own way to burn.”—
