Famous quotes containing the words kingsley amis and/or amis:

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

    The ideal of brotherhood of man, the building of the Just City, is one that cannot be discarded without lifelong feelings of disappointment and loss. But, if we are to live in the real world, discard it we must. Its very nobility makes the results of its breakdown doubly horrifying, and it breaks down, as it always will, not by some external agency but because it cannot work.
    —Kingsley Amis (1922–1995)
