The simple life which blandly ignores all care and conflict, soon becomes flabby and invertebrate, sentimental and gelatinous.
As some day it may happen that a victim must be found, I've got a little listI've got a little list Of society offenders who might well be underground, And whonever would be missed whonever would be missed! There's the pestilential nuisances who write for autographs All people who have flabby hands and irritating laughs.Sir W(illiam) S(chwenck) Gilbert
APHORISM, n. Predigested wisdom. The flabby wine-skin of his brain Yields to some pathologic strain, And voids from its unstored abysm The driblet of an aphorism. "The Mad Philosopher," 1697
It's not a pretty face, I grant you. But underneath its flabby exterior is an enormous lack of character.Oscar Levant
