PG Wodehouse - a name that's every bookworm's delight. His gloriously witty books, and lovable clueless characters in the form of Bertie Wooster, Jeeves, Psmith and the like, is an art that has died with him.Wodehouse, had the magical ability to make every single line seem like a quotable quote. His humour, admittedly, goes above the heads of most people. Probably because they cannot laugh at a joke unless it's dancing on a pole right under their noses. Slapstick, this is not. But buy a book, still. This is what good literature is all about.
On his birth anniversary, let's look through some of this inimitable wordsmith's best quotes:
If you've not grown up with a healthy dose of Wodehouse, you're not likely to appreciate the joy that his writing is. You've also lead a pretty deprived life. Go buy, borrow, beg, a book from someone as soon as you can.His was the sort of literature that would sink into minds the same way dark chocolate sinks into the soul. The Queen's language never seemed as funny as it did through his works.
