"A woman is only vulnerable when her nail polish is drying, and even then she can still pull a trigger."
"If nothing else, a house is a place to keep books in."
Robert Pogue Harrison, The Dominion of the Dead
"I do not mean to object to a thorough knowledge of the famous works we read. I object only to the interminable comments and bewildering criticisms that teach but one thing: there are as many opinions as there are men."
Helen Keller, The Story of My Life
There's nothing sexier than a man who enjoys good literature.
The same goes for women, at least for me.
