Your retort, LR, reminds me

Posted to Utterances




with pleasure of William Faulkner's famous comeback:

(interviewer)

"Do you feel that Luke ( a Faulkner character) is redeemed or made more respectable through love?"

(Faulkner)

"What's love got to do with respectability?"

or Yeats' :


"For Love has pitched his palace in
The place of excrement . . ."
