Quotes

Hed noticed that sex bore some resemblance to cookery: it fascinated people, they sometimes bought books full of complicated recipes and interesting pictures, and sometimes when they were really hungry they created vast banquets in their imagination - but at the end of the day theyd settle quite happily for egg and chips. If it was well done and maybe had a slice of tomato.
A marriage is always made up of two people who are prepared to swear that only the other one snores.
You did something because it had always been done, and the explanation was, ‘But we’ve always done it this way.’ A million dead people can’t have been wrong, can they?
