Bookish Matters

The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.

Words of Wisdom From E. Gorey

It takes elan
To wield a Fan.

Forbear to taste
Library Paste.

The way to Hell
Is down a Well.

The letter X
Was made to vex.

-Edward Gorey, from The Eclectic Abecedarium
