Wisdom from Polonius


Alan Bennett


“Children always assume the sexual lives of their parents come to a grinding halt at their conception.”


“Life is rather like a tin of sardines, we’re looking for the key.”


“I’m all in favour of free expression provided it’s kept rigidly under control.”


“I’ve never seen the point of the sea, except where it meets the land.  The shore has a point.  The sea has none.”


“I write plays about things that I can’t resolve in my mind.”
