Bits from books

"No matter what they wish for, no matter how far they go, people can never be anything but themselves" (from "Birthday Girl", in "Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman" by Haruki Murakami)
"I was surprised that Buenos Aires was so majestic from the second or third storey upwards and so dilapidated at street level, as if the splendor of the past had remained suspended in the heights and refused to descend or disappear" (from "The Tango Singer" by Tomas Eloy Martínez, trad. Anne McLean)
"He moved with the grace of a refrigerator" (from "The Falling Palace" by Dan Hofstadter)
(Could be a description of me attempting to dance the tango.. or anything else for that matter.)
