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.
