"She fed on her popularity and was disposed to like many men"

"Gloria constantly broke engagements -
but isn't that the prerogative of the super-flapper?"

"People told her constantly that she was a vampire and she believed it "

"Disinherited! And Philip knows no career save that of spending"

"A Saturday to Monday party with the burden of their song ---
The panic has come over us --- so has the moral decline!"

"I detest reformers -- especially the sort who try to reform me!"
