If at first you don't succeed, try again. Then quit. No use being a damn fool about it. --W.C. FieldsAnd this one later on:
I find suggestion a hell of a lot more provocative than explicit detail. You didn't see Clark [Gable] and Vivien [Leigh] rolling around in bed in Gone With The Wind, but you saw that shit-eating grin on her face the next morning and you knew damned well she'd gotten properly laid. --Joan CrawfordAnd this poetic one:
The snow doesn't give a soft white damn whom it touches. --E. E. Cummings
It's a book so I'm counting it in my final tally. 10 down plus 42 and volume 1 of the Norton Anthology of English Literature to go.
