" I didn't ask to see you. I don't mind if you don't like my manners, I don't like them myself. They are pretty bad. I grieve over them on long winter evenings. I don't mind your ritzing me drinking your lunch out of a bottle. But don't waste your time trying to cross-examine me." - Philip Marlowe: The Big Sleep © 2020 Arlequin Photographie

Decent people lost their jobs.... Big money is big power and big power gets used wrong. It's the system.” ― Philip Marlowe: The Long Goodbye © 2020 Arlequin Photographie
