Dorothy Parker's Language of Love


.
Whose Love is given over-well
Will look on Helen's face in Hell;
While they whose love is thin and wise
May view John Knox in Paradise.
                                     Dorothy Parker- Life, 24 February 1927  
Nikolai Ivanovich Argunov, Cupid

  1. A nice touch...quoting Dorothy Parker on Valentine's day. Parker herself would appreciate the neat irony.--Road to Parnassus

  3. Well, I want the shoes, of course; but you knew that. As for the Parker citation, I agree with the whole happy-spirited remark of Parnassus (have to, we've named a hill in SF on that account) except for the bit about irony; given that V Day is already so steeped in it, she might be its likeliest navigatrix. But it's the damned illustration which smooths all feathers - an awesomely exact selection. I suppose you cut these things out and float them in your bath, teasing them about with bubbles to see how they behave. That's a sizeable tub you've got there; happy valentine's day!
