Famous quotes by kingsley amis:

    He was of the faith chiefly in the sense that the church he currently did not attend was Catholic.
    Kingsley Amis (b. 1922)

    Growing older, I have lost the need to be political, which means, in this country, the need to be left. I am driven into grudging toleration of the Conservative Party because it is the party of non-politics, of resistance to politics.
    Kingsley Amis (1922–1995)
