Perelman, S. J.
- English life, while very pleasant, is rather bland. I expected kindness and gentility and I found it, but there is such a thing as too much couth.
- The main obligation is to amuse yourself.
- There is something about a home aquarium which sets my teeth on edge the moment I see it. Why anyone would want to live with a small container of stagnant water populated by a half-dead guppy is beyond me.
- The dubious privilege of a freelance writer is he's given the freedom to starve anywhere.
