“That's the trouble with people like you, Knight, you only know how to mock. How to break things. You don't know how to create anything. You never did.”
Malcolm Pryce, Aberystwyth Mon Amour
tags: humor

“The train slowed down at the approach to shrewsbury station and glided between the eleventh-century abbey and the stadium of shrewsbury town football club. Two sacred arenas where men chanted and waited for a miracle that never came.”
Malcolm Pryce, The Unbearable Lightness Of Being In Aberystwyth

“... it seems to me there are two schools of thought. One you find in gift shops, written on trinkets adorned with pink hearts, on little notebooks and diaries and teddies and stuff; it says, “If you love them, let them go.” And then there’s the other school of thought, the Louie Knight school, which says, “If you love someone, don’t let them go.” The first one is fine if you live in a gift shop or if your supply of happiness on this earth is as plentiful and uninterrupted as the gas that comes through the mains. But if you’re like me and you find that most of the time the gas is cut off, you can’t afford to be so prodigal.”
Malcolm Pryce, Don't Cry For Me Aberystwyth
