Stylist's Literary Lists

Stumbled across these on my Google Reader; liked the idea so much, I decided to share on my blog.


Top 50 literary put-downs



THE 50 BEST LITERARY PUT-DOWNS




Some of the quotes are:
  • The simplicity of your character makes you exquisitely incomprehensible to me. - "The Importance of Being Earnest" by Oscar Wilde
  • She is tolerable; but not handsome enough to tempt me. - Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  • He is simply a hole in the air. - The Lion and the Unicorn by George Orwell
  • All morons hate it when you call them a moron. - Catcher and the Rye by J. D. Salinger
See the whole list at Stylist and while you're there, check out some of their other literary lists:
