“There's only one thing more boring than listening to other people's dreams, and that's listening to their problems.”
Sue Townsend, The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, Aged 13 3/4

“She liked people. Me, I can take them or leave them, but mostly leave them.”
Sue Townsend, The Woman Who Went to Bed for a Year

“Now I know I am an intellectual. I saw Malcolm Muggeridge on the television last night, and I understood nearly every word. It all adds up. A bad home, poor diet, not liking punk. I think I will join the library and see what happens.”
Sue Townsend
