    Well, I’d certainly say she had marvelous judgment, Albert, if not particularly good taste.
    —L.Q. Jones [Justus Mcqueen] (b. 1936)

    How the mother is to be pitied who hath handsome daughters! Locks, bolts, bars, and lectures of morality are nothing to them: they break through them all. They have as much pleasure in cheating a father and mother, as in cheating at cards.
