Four be the things I am wiser to know: Idleness, sorrow, a friend, and a foe.

Three be the things I shall never attain: Envy, content, and sufficient champagne.

Three be the things I shall have till I die: Laughter and hope and a sock in the eye.

“Inventory” by Dorothy Parker (1893 – 1967)

           – Bitter Lemons by Lawrence Durrell
