Quotable: No Wonder They Prefer the Company of Corgis

One can't blame royalty, it's the high proportion of morons among their subjects who make them what they are.

-- John Fowles (1926-2005), on the occasion of
    Lord Snowdon's visiting the set of The French
    Lieutenant's Woman


Whether enjoying outstanding success, or during the later years of decline when the money ran out and the literary acclaim ceased, Fowles managed to maintain a steady gloom.

-- Harry Phibbs, reviewing (and quoting liberally
    from) Fowles' Journals, Vol. 2, here.
