Famous quotes containing the word quid:
“My paternal grandmother would not light a fire on the Sabbath and piled all Sundays washing-up in a bucket, to be dealt with on Monday morning, because the Sabbath was a day of resta practice that made my paternal grandfather, the village atheist, as mad as fire. Nevertheless, he willed five quid to the minister, just to be on the safe side.”
—Angela Carter (19401992)
