[But All This Was Nothing Compared To The Face Which I Regret To Say Vaguely Resembled My Own, Less The Refinement Of Course, Same Little Abortive Moustache, Same Little Ferrety Eyes, Same Paraphimosis Of The Nose, And A Thin Red Mouth That Looked As If It Was Raw From Trying To Shit Its Tongue.]

Quotes About Country Songs

"People think first love is sweet, and never sweeter than when that first bond snaps. Youve heard a thousand pop and country songs that prove the point; some fool got his heart broke.

Quotes About Rape Of The Lock

"Most Americans do not own passports. Theyre not a naturally curious people. If you were to lock an American for sixty years in an empty underground bunker which contained nothing but a woolly tea cosy, the American would not even be curious enough to be tempted to see if the tea cosy would make a serviceable hat. Theyre far more likely to arrest the tea cosy, intern it illegally in Guantanamo Bay, and then repeatedly anally rape it until such time that it admits that it was actually a member of an al-Qaeda training cell. Even though at the time of the alleged offence the tea cosy was actually working as a shop assistant in a branch of Currys in Wolverhampton." - Author: Stewart Lee

Quotes About Faria

"The seeking of a mate shall be undertaken with due preparation and care. A life-bond should never be contemplated as a light thing--unlike a legal union or sanctified joining, the sealing of souls CANNOT be severed. When a mate is SOULBOUND to another--LIFEMATED, as some have come to regard it--a mystery is engaged. In one aspect mystical, the lifemating process is the most sublime endeavor that a Refarian may assume. Once formed, the bond must be ever cherished and nurtured by the process of lifelong rigor." - Author: Deidre Knight

Quotes About Sending Postcards

"As ever, the original inhabitants of Turtle Island are entirely overlooked. Mysteriously, the only time indigenous people are guaranteed a mainstream Amerikkan mention is on Thanksgiving.

Quotes About Metropolitan Cities

"Does Britannia, when she sleeps, dream? Is America her dream?-- in which all that cannot pass in the metropolitan Wakefulness is allowd Expression away in the restless Slumber of these Provinces, and on West-ward, wherever tis not yet mappd, nor written down, nor ever, by the majority of Mankind, seen,-- serving as a very Rubbish-Tip for subjunctive Hopes, for all that may yet be true,-- Earthly Paradise, Fountain of Youth, Realms of Prester John, Christs Kingdom, ever behind the sunset, safe til the next Territory to the West be seen and recorded, measurd and tied in, back into the Net-Work of Points already known, that slowly triangulates its Way into the Continent, changing all from subjunctive to declarative, reducing Possibilities to Simplicities that serve the ends of Governments,-- winning away from the realm of the Sacred, its Borderlands one by one, and assuming them unto the bare mortal World that is our home, and our Despair." - Author: Thomas Pynchon
