QuotationAll that stuff, since Huxley made such a fool of himself in After Many a Summer Dies the Swan, seems to be so superficial. I don't know why, but there seems to me to be something else you are obliged to do about an ugly hotdog stand besides making obvious remarks about it in a high state of moral indignation. If you don't like it, kick it down
