  •  Best quote ever about principles (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    "The first thing a principle does," Lord Peter said, "if it really is a principle, is get somebody killed."

    Dorothy L. Sayers' Gaudy Night is sheer genius for many reasons. That quote's one. The scenes with the chessmen are others. But maybe my favorite part is Harriett's first acceptance of an actual gift, without quibble, from a man who's been madly in love with her for years. He buys her a spiked dog-collar, as a defense against being strangled.

    Abby Scuioto would be proud.
