Our minidictionary of quotations(!) opened up at TS Elliot (1888-1965):Human KindCannot bear very much reality.or the slightly glum:This is the way the world endsNot with a bang but with a whimper.or my favourite:Here we go round the prickly pearPrickly pear prickly pear
You can't go past H L Mencken for a good hearty quote I say:"Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard."or"The older I grow the more I distrust the familiar doctrine that age brings wisdom."or"There is always a well-known solution to every human problem--neat, plausible, and wrong."or my personal fave:"Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats."Howzat?
ooh I have some nice ones at home - will type them in here later.
