Miranda Hart
“Look in the mirror and say, 'There is none other like you and for that reason alone you are beautiful.”
Miranda Hart, Is It Just Me?

Robert Rankin
“Probably one of those sinister organisations that lurked behind the mask of amusing acronym, such as BUM, for example - the Bermondsey Union of Minstrels. Or WILLY, the Whitechapel Institution for Long-Legged Yodellers. It could be any one of a hundred such evil cabals. With the notable exception of the Meritorious Union For Friendship, Decency, Individualism, Virtue and Educational Resources, who were above reproach.”
Robert Rankin, The Educated Ape and Other Wonders of the Worlds

Aleister Crowley
“The Victrola, the Movies, a lecture: such are the three American alternatives to Silence, Scandal and Squabble.
Or else, get drunk. America knows no other devices to enable its inhabitants to endure either their own company or that of their fellow-creatures.”
Aleister Crowley, The Drug and Other Stories

“You know that place between sleep and awake, that place where you still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you. That’s where I’ll be waiting.”
James V. Hart, Hook

Aleister Crowley
“But to understand English is one thing; to understand an Englishman who talks is another.”
Aleister Crowley
