Quote of the Week

"The only reason I like girls, is that I want to fuck them, which is adolescent, cheap, irresponsible, not worth doing, a waste of time, not much fun anyway, a needless distraction from my real vocation, destructive of any real power of understanding women which as a novelist HOOHOO should be important to me...All I have to do now is to stop wanting to fuck girls and I shall have the thing licked."
- Kingsley Amis, in a 1953 letter to Philip Larkin
(quoted in the April 23, 2007 New Yorker)
