Friday Five: Coward Quotes

Lauren Bacall and Noel Coward in Blithe Spirit
As I am directing Blithe Spirit, my mind is currently full of Cowardisms. Here are five of my favourite.

5 Quotes from Blithe Spirit:
  1. "You're awfully irritating when you're determined to be witty at all costs." 
  2. "It's discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit."
  3. "I do think it's interesting how easily people allow themselves to be deceived."
  4. "Anybody can write books, but it takes an artist to make a dry martini that's dry enough."
  5. "I long ago came to the conclusion that nothing has ever been proved about anything."

I agree with 2 & 3, I don't like martini anyway and I am sure that writing a book is terribly hard. I can't remember 5 and I can just imagine the first spoken in the voice of the time.
Hope that it all goes amazingly well.
