Wodehouse Quotes on Command

Random Wodehouse Quote Generator! Here’s one I just got: “Mike nodded. A sombre nod. The nod Napoleon might have given if somebody had met him in 1812 and said, ‘So, you’re back from Moscow, eh?'”

Just because it’s about a cigar: “Once at the country club, coming out of the showers in the nude and sitting down on the nearest bench to dry himself, Mr Cobbold’s attention had been drawn to the fact that a fellow member had left a lighted cigar there, and until tonight he had always regarded that as the high spot of his emotional life.”

Another gem: “Gussie, a glutton for punishment, stared at himself in the mirror. ”

I think I’ve said this before: I’d give just about anything to write like Wodehouse. As one friend put it, his writing is like champagne. Exquisite champagne. Well, I find that Wodehouse lets slip the secret to his writing: “I just sit at the typewriter and curse a bit.”
