Jimmy s Note
All happy families are happy alike, all unhappy families are unhappy in their own way.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness. It was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity.

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

The sun shone, having no alternative, on the nothing new.
It was love at first sight. The first time Yossarian saw the chaplain he fell madly in love with him.
Miss Brooke had that kind of beauty which seems to be thrown into relief by poor dress.
All children, except one, grow up.
Under certain circumstance there are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.
They’re out there. Black boys in white suits up before me to commit sex acts in the hall and get it manned up before I can catch them.
I am a camera with its shutter open, quite passive, recording, not thinking.
There was no possibility of taking a walk that day.
Elmer Gantry was drunk. He was eloquently drunk, lovingly and pugnaciously drunk.

It was the day my grandmother exploded.
The schoolmaster was leaving the village, and everybody seemed sorry.
He was an old man who fished alone in a skiff in the Gulf Stream and he had gone 84 days now without taking a fish.
