...a ponderous effort to make a simple affair, when rightly understood, a matter of transcendental mystery. -Richard Owen

"And seeing you cross the quad in this direction, I turned in that direction like the needle to the North. Dark," said Mr. Pomfret, with animation, "and true and tender is the North. That’s a quotation."

Dorothy L. Sayers, Gaudy Night (via smokeandsong)

Check it: how Sayers breaks apart Reggie’s quote, splitting it up so that the cadence is off and the sentiment is unbalanced and making it, subtly, as ridiculous to read as it would be to hear.

So, fine, Will is a complicated bastard with a black hole for a heart (and also feelings) but motherfucker plays the blues guitar. I mean, with that in addition to wearing a suit well and scowling all the fucking time, it’s like, fine, just hit me everywhere, The Good Wife. I’ll just have an even bigger, stupider crush than I did before.
