“Satire lies about literary men while they live and eulogy lies about them when they die.”

“Satire is tragedy plus time. You give it enough time, the public, the reviewers will allow you to satirize it. Which is rather ridiculous, when you think about it.”
“The gentle reader will never, never know what a consummate ass he can become until he goes abroad.”
