Wharton Jones

Famous quotes containing the words wharton and/or jones:

    I am secretly afraid of animals.... I think it is because of the usness in their eyes, with the underlying not-usness which belies it, and is so tragic a reminder of the lost age when we human beings branched off and left them: left them to eternal inarticulateness and slavery. Why? their eyes seem to ask us.
    —Edith Wharton (1862–1937)

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