Quotations

  • ''When her guests were awash with champagne and with gin,
    She was recklessly sober, as sharp as a pin.
    An abstemious man would reel at her look,
    As she rolled a bright eye and praised his last book.''
    William Plomer (1903-1973), South African author, poet. "London Ballads and Poems," verse 7, Slightly Foxed, or The Widower of Bayswater, Collected Poems (1960).
