Some killer passages from the Kindle edition of The Collected Works of P.G. Wodehouse:
“It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.”
“He had the appearance of one who has searched for the leak in life’s gas-pipe with a lighted candle . . .”.
“She fitted into my biggest arm-chair as if it had been built round her by someone who knew they were wearing arm-chairs tight about the hips that season.”
“I’ve just become a Socialist. It’s a great scheme. You ought to be one. You work for the equal distribution of property, and start by collaring all you can and sitting on it.”
The “burglar is only a practical socialist. Philosophers talk a lot about the redistribution of wealth. The burglar goes out and does it.”
“Any man under thirty years of age who tells you he is not afraid of an English butler lies.”Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg | Facebook | Technorati | Google | StumbleUpon | Window Live | Tailrank | Furl | Netscape | Yahoo | BlinkList
