“So many people consider their work a daily punishment. Whereas I love my work as a translator. Translation is a journey over a sea from one shore to the other. Sometimes I think of myself as a smuggler: I cross the frontier of language with my booty of words, ideas, images, and metaphors.”

― Amara Lakhous, Clash of Civilizations Over an Elevator in Piazza Vittorio

Haskell Source Plugin which removes unused imports automatically.
