    The more you reason the less you create.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    Your rat tail is all the fashion now. I prefer a bushy plume, carried straight up. You are Siamese and your ancestors lived in trees. Mine lived in palaces. It has been suggested to me that I am a bit of a snob. How true! I prefer to be.
    —Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)
