Kingsley Amis
Be glad you're fifty and
That you got there while things were nice,
In a world worth looking at twice.
So here's wishing you many more years,
But not all that many. Cheers!
Amis quotes
Your attitude measures up to the two requirements of love. You want to go to bed with her and can't, and you don't know her very well. Ignorance of the other person topped up with deprivation, Jim. You fit the formula all right, and what's more you want to go on fitting it.
It was no wonder that people were so horrible when they started life as children.

Amis Kingsley quotes
A bad review may spoil your breakfast, but you shouldn't allow it to spoil your lunch.
Amis Kingsley
There isn't another other sex.
Kingsley Amis quotes
If there's one word that sums up everything that's gone wrong since the war, it's Workshop. After Youth, that is.
Kingsley Amis
More will mean worse.
