|Robert Louis Stevenson on Walt Whitman:||“…like a large shaggy dog just unchained scouring the beaches of the world and baying at the moon.”|
|Vladimir Nabokov on Joseph Conrad:||"I cannot abide Conrad’s souvenir shop style and bottled ships and shell necklaces of romanticist cliches.”|
|Charles Baudelaire on Voltaire (1864):||"I grow bored in France — and the main reason is that everybody here resembles Voltaire…the king of nincompoops, the prince of the superficial, the anti-artist, the spokesman of janitresses, the Father Gigone of the editors of Siecle.”|
|Vladimir Nabokov on Ernest Hemingway (1972):||“As to Hemingway, I read him for the first time in the early ‘forties, something about bells, balls and bulls, and loathed it.”|
|D.H. Lawrence on Herman Melville (1923):||“Nobody can be more clownish, more clumsy and sententiously in bad taste, than Herman Melville, even in a great book like ‘Moby Dick’….One wearies of the grand serieux. There’s something false about it. And that’s Melville. Oh dear, when the solemn ass brays! brays! brays!”|
|Evelyn Waugh on Marcel Proust (1948):||“I am reading Proust for the first time. Very poor stuff. I think he was mentally defective.”|

okay, blackzephyrus, two things:
1. congratulations on being the embodiment of exactly what the original post was about.
2. you can absolutely hate people you’ve never met. for example, to my knowledge I have never met a Nazi, however I still manage to hate Nazis.
it just annoys the shit out of me because when rory would stand up for amy and shout at the doctor everyone would be like “yeah!! fucking rory fuck yeah!!” but now that danny is doing it everyone is crying emotional abuse
and it’s made worse by the fact that all danny did was ask that he not be lied to
which is really… asking not to be abused emotionally
nothing that danny pink has done in his appearances to date constitutes anything that even remotely resembles abuse.
