The unspeakable in full pursuit of the uneatable.
It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating.
Life is too important to be taken seriously.
Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess.
Music makes one feel so romantic - at least it always gets on one's nerves - which is the same thing nowadays.
The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything. Except what is worth knowing. Journalism, conscious of this, and having tradesman-like habits, supplies their demands.
One can survive everything, nowadays, except death, and live down everything except a good reputation.
Seriousness is the only refuge of the shallow.
Work is the curse of the drinking classes.
