Jimmy Greaves Quote
“Of all hatreds that the world produces, a wife's hatred for her husband, when she does hate him, is the strongest.”
Phineas Redux (1874)
“A bat is born
Naked and blind and pale.
His mother makes a pocket of her tail
And catches him. He clings to her long fur
By his thumbs and toes and teeth.
And then the mother dances through the night
Doubling and looping, soaring, somersaulting —
Her baby hangs on underneath.”
A bat is born, lines 1-31; reprinted as Bats in The Lost World (1965) - The Bat-Poet (1964)
“Obscenity is a moral concept in the verbal arsenal of the establishment, which abuses the term by applying it, not to expressions of its own morality but to those of another.”
