The Evening Standard reported on a cab driver who asked passengers for their favourite quotes and proverbs, and with them has published a book with 400 of the best.
The book, "Black Cab Wisdom'' written by Mark Solomon, is undergoing a 10,000-copy reprint after the first 5,000 sold out. Solomon said he started writing down passengers' favourite quotes on scrap paper but then he started leaving a clipboard in the back of the cab.
Solomon has been driving for 12 years. "Cab driving itself has restored my faith in London,'' he said.
"There are so many good people out there. They may have done a 12-hour demanding day but they're still prepared to give me the time of day."
