"Broke? You haven't the thirsty look of the impecunious. I'd judge you to be a plutocrat, your pockets stuffed with ill-gotten gains. Two or three dollars, at least. And don't think we will question how you got it." -Eugene O'Neill, The Iceman Cometh
"He lit the dining-room lamp, got out a cigar, and began pacing the room, ejaculating. Now and then he would argue with himself." -H.G. Wells, The Invisible Man
"He had the incongruity of common and elegant in which the habitually vulgar think they see the revelation of an eccentric existence, of the perturbations of sentiment, the tyrannies of art, and always a certain contempt for social conventions, that seduces or exasperates them" - G. Flaubert, Madame Bovary
"Let go of my dong, Shakespeare" - Norman Mailer, Why Are We in Vietnam?
