Saturday’s Piece

Love is like quicksilver in the hand. Leave the fingers open and it stays in the palm; clutch it and it darts away.

(Dorothy Parker, 1893 – 1967)

Thursday’s Piece

A glass of port in his hand and a fat cigar in his mouth, with a huge and bloody red steak which he puts in his mouth in big chunks, and chew and chatters and smokes until the blood trickles down his chin – and to think this monster comes of a good family.

(Goebbels‘ picture of Winston Churchill on the Front Bench of the House of Commons, 1943)
