“I am an absurd idealist. But I believe that all that must come true. For, unless it comes true, the world will be laid desolate. And I believe that it can come true. I believe that, by the grace of God, men will awake presently and be men again, and colour and laughter and splendid living will return to a grey civilisation. But that will only come true because a few men will believe in it, and fight for it, and fight in its name against everything that sneers and snarls at that ideal.”
Leslie Charteris, The Last Hero

“Do you think I'd carry a gun in a suit like this ? My tailor would throw a fit.”
Leslie Charteris, The Saint Plays with Fire

“Let’s see what you’ve got—as the actress said to the bishop,”
Leslie Charteris, Enter the Saint
