Famous quotes containing the words corso and/or philip:

    it’s just that I see love as odd as wearing shoes—
    I never wanted to marry a girl who was like my mother
    And Ingrid Bergman was always impossible
    —Gregory Corso (b. 1930)

    It’s unthinkable not to love—you’d have a severe nervous breakdown. Or you’d have to be Philip Larkin.
