Black Mischief

Yep, the menu was courtesy (ha!) of Evelyn Waugh. It was bundled with Vile Bodies and while I enjoyed the prickly humor I couldn't say that I recommend either too highly. Today's passage is a metaquote but one I can't stop thinking about.

"We associate truth with convenience, with what most closely accords with self-interest and personal well-being or promises best to avoid awkward effort or unwelcome dislocation of life. We also find highly acceptable what contributes most to self-esteem."
