my new heroine, dorothy parker

"I wish I could drink like a lady,
I'll have one or two at the most.
Three and I'm under the table,
Four and I'm under the host."

"I've been too fucking busy, and vice versa."

"They sicken of the calm, who knew the storm."

"The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity."

"Men seldom make passes
At girls who wear glasses."

"This is not a book to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force."

"This wasn't just plain terrible, this was fancy terrible. This was terrible with raisins in it."

"Time doth flit; oh shit."
