Lady Chatterley's Lover

Lady Chatterley's Lover · David Herbert Lawrence · Könyv · Moly

There's lots of good fish in the sea… maybe.
But the vast masses seem to be mackerel or herring, and if you're not mackerel or herring yourself, you're likely to find very few good fish in the sea. In fact everything was a little ridiculous, or very ridiculous: certainly everything connected with authority, whether it were in the army or the government or the universities, was ridiculous to a degree. And as far as the governing class made any pretensions to govern, they were ridiculous too. Sir Geoffrey, Clifford's father, was intensely ridiculous, chopping down his trees , and weeding men out of his colliery to shove them into the war; and himself being so safe and patriotic; but, also, spending more money on his country than he'd got.
