Sunday’s Piece

False – furtive. When shut of the room, you must not peep through the key-hole. Either break down the door, or go away.

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)
