Capitalism is the exploitation of man by man. Yes? Well socialism is exactly the reverse.
Deighton quotes
The tragedy of marriage is that while all women marry thinking that their man will change, all men marry believing their wife will never change.
"When old men decided to barter young men for pride and profit, the transaction was called war."

Deighton Len quotes
"...But love is like the measles; the later in life it affects you, the more severe the consequences"
"Is there anything you can take for it?"
"Only wedding vows"
Deighton Len
The factory workers say that itís impossible to do anything right. If you arrive five minutes early you are a saboteur; if you arrive five minutes late you are betraying socialism; if you arrive on time they say, "Where did you get the watch?"
Len Deighton quotes
Progress is manís indifference to the lessons of history.
