Upon Having Successfully Robbed a Bank

"Remember you now have, with your newly acquired assets, responsibilities. Deposit your untraceable unmarked bills in a reputable bank. If you want to have a bit of a fling, do it modestly. Do not overtip nor give your wife or girlfriend cause for jealousy. As she can frequently be a source of betrayal. Do good but modest works in the community. And openly complain that you wish others would do as much."

- J.P. Donleavy from The Unexpurgated Code
