Five quotes by H.H. Munro (Saki)

Hector Hugh Munro (December 18, 1870 - November 13, 1916), better known by the pen name Saki, was a British writer, whose witty and sometimes macabre stories satirised Edwardian society and culture. He is considered a master of the short story and is often compared to O. Henry and Dorothy Parker. His tales feature delicately drawn characters and finely judged narratives. 'The Open Window' may be his most famous, with a closing line ('Romance at short notice was her speciality') that has entered the lexicon.
 A little inaccuracy sometimes saves a ton of explanation. 
 A woman who takes her husband about with her everywhere is like a cat that goes on playing with a mouse long after she's killed it. 
 Beauty is only sin deep. 
 People talk vaguely about the innocence of a little child, but they take mighty good care not to let it out of their sight for twenty minutes. 
 The people of Crete unfortunately make more history than they can consume locally.
