I’ve always thought of being in love as being willing to do anything for the other person—starve to buy them bread and not mind living in Siberia with them—and I’ve always thought that every minute away from them would be hell—so looking at it that [way] I guess I’m not in love with you.

two gentlemen and a punt gun, 1923

The Punt Guns were too big to hold and the recoil so violent they were mounted directly on the punts used for hunting, hence their name… The hunter would maneuver the entire boat in order to aim the gun… [and] firing the gun generated so much force it pushed the boat back.
