    Elyot: It doesn’t suit women to be promiscuous.
    Amanda: It doesn’t suit men for women to be promiscuous.
    Noël Coward (1899–1973)

    Other men wear white suits in summer and it doesn’t seem to bother them. But my white suit seems to be a little whiter than theirs. I think also that it may have something written on the back of it, although I can’t find it when I take the suit off.

    I don’t like you very well.
    You don’t suit my clothes or my cigarettes.
    Why do you locate here
    as large as a tank,
    aiming at one half of a lifetime?
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
