Alan Sillitoe
Government wars aren't my wars; they've got nowt to do with me, because my own war's all that I'll ever be bothered about.
Sillitoe quotes
Everybody thinks they'll never get married at your age. So did Jack, he told me. You think you can go on all your life being single, I remember he said, but you suddenly find out that you can't.
Whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not.

Sillitoe Alan quotes
You can always rely on a society of equals taking it out on the women.
Sillitoe Alan
I realized it might be possible to do such a thing, run for money, trot for wages on piece work at a bob a puff rising bit by bit to a guinea a gasp and retiring through old age at thirty-two because of lace-curtain lungs, a football heart, and legs like varicose beanstalks.
