Dorothy Parker
“A hangover is the wrath of grapes.”
Dorothy Parker

Barbara Pym
“The small things of life were often so much bigger than the great things . . . the trivial pleasure like cooking, one's home, little poems especially sad ones, solitary walks, funny things seen and overheard.”
Barbara Pym

Anthony Trollope
“Above all else, never think you're not good enough.”
Anthony Trollope

Georgette Heyer
“Sir Richard sighed. "Rid yourself of the notion that I cherish any villainous designs upon your person," he said. "I imagine I might well be your father. How old are you?"

"I am turned seventeen."

"Well, I am nearly thirty," said Sir Richard.

Miss Creed worked this out. "You couldn't possibly be my father!"

"I am far too drunk to solve arithmetical problems. Let it suffice that I have not the slightest intention of making love to you.”
Georgette Heyer, The Corinthian

Barbara Pym
“For although she had been, and still was, very much admired, she had got into the way of preferring unsatisfactory love affairs to any others, so that it was becoming almost a bad habit.”
Barbara Pym, Jane and Prudence
