Who doesn’t like a teaspoon of irony with their coffee?
Enough Hemingway I’m now onto the sarcastic yet dulcet tones of Evelyn Waugh.
Namely her novel, Scoop. I’ve been a fan of her without actually knowing it. Some of her most known quotes are among my favourites, I just didn’t know they came from her.
So in the spirit of all things Scoop which satirizes the world of journalism I thought I’d share some.
“All this fuss about sleeping together for pleasure. I’d sooner go to my dentist any day. ” – Evelyn Waugh
“Punctuality is the virtue of the bored. .” – Evelyn Waugh
“I did not know it was possible to be so miserable and live. But I’m told it’s a common experience . ” – Evelyn Waugh
And my all time favorite:
“Your actions and actions alone determine your worth.”. ” – Evelyn Waugh
