Quote o' the day

From Raymond Chandler, The Big Sleep, Chapter 10:

I took my dark glasses off and tapped them delicately on the inside of my left wrist. If you can weigh a hundred and ninety pounds and look like a fairy, I was doing my best.

Well, I weigh about 196 and wear dark glasses and I'm doing my best, too!
