“it’s only about once in a lifetime that anything sensational ever happens to one, and when it does, you don’t want people taking all the colour out of it. i remember at school having to read that stuff where that chap, othello, tells the girl what a hell of a time he’d been having among the cannibals and whatnot. well, imagine his feelings if, after he had described some particularly sticky passage with a cannibal chief and was waiting for the awestruck “oh-h! not really?”, she had said that the whole thing had no doubt been greatly exaggerated and that the man had probably really been a prominent local vegetarian.”

-p.g. wodehouse, from one of the jeeves series books (not sure which)
