Quotes About London Fashion

"Lord Peters library was one of the most delightful bachelor rooms in London. Its scheme was black and primrose; its walls were lined with rare editions, and its chairs and Chesterfield sofa suggested the embraces of the houris. In one corner stood a black baby grand, a wood fire leaped on a wide old-fashioned hearth, and the Sèvres vases on the chimneypiece were filled with ruddy and gold chrysanthemums. To the eyes of the young man who was ushered in from the raw November fog it seemed not only rare and unattainable, but friendly and familiar, like a colourful and gilded paradise in a mediæval painting" - Author: Dorothy L.

Quotes About Miss Know It All

And beneath his pessimism, his bleak conviction that all the machinery was rigged against him, at the bottom of his soul was a faith that he was going to outwit it, that by carefully watching the signs he was going to know when to dodge and be spared. It was fatalism with a loophole, and all you had to do to make it work was never miss a sign. Survival by coordination, as it were. The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, but to those who can see it coming and jump aside. Like a frog evading a shillelagh in a midnight marsh." - Author: Hunter S. Thompson

Quotes About The Bnp

"Extremist material of any kind always looks gaudy and cheap, like a bad pizza menu.

And thoughtful, inquisitive sorts tend to think fascism is a bit shit, to be honest. If the BNP really were the greatest British party, theyd have the greatest British designer working for them - Jonathan Ive, perhaps, the man who designed the iPod. But they dont. Theyve got someone who tries to stab your eyes out with primary colours." - Author: Charlie Brooker
