There was a pause just long enough for an angel to pass, flying slowly.
Firbank quotes
The world is disgracefully managed, one hardly knows to whom to complain.
Firbank

Firbank Ronald quotes
"Oh! help me, heaven," she prayed, "to be decorative and to do right!"
Firbank Ronald
I suppose when there's no more room for another crow's-foot, one attains a sort of peace?
Ronald Firbank quotes
He had something of the air, if one can imagine such a combination, of a witty and decadent Red Indian.
Ronald Firbank
Princess: I am always disappointed with mountains. There are no mountains in the world as high as I could wish.

Princess: They irritate me invariably. I should like to shake Switzerland.
