George Orwell on Graham Greene

No real time to post or think, but time enough to share this little nugget, from Orwell's "The Sanctified Sinner," an essay on Graham Greene: “He [Greene] appears to share the idea, which has been floating around ever since Baudelaire, that there is something rather distingue in being damned; Hell is a sort of high class night club, entry to which is reserved for Catholics only.”

That's a very fine nugget. I'm off to mine that reef soon. Thanks for the tip-off.

Now let's have a good look at the online luxury watch . From the appearance, I can boldly say it is really beautiful and eye-pleasing. It is limited to 1600 pieces, and now is already available all over the globe. It is said that part of the benefit will be used to support NRDC and Green Cross International.
