Allow me to Quote…

This time my 'quote' is from Tristram Shandy by Laurence Sterne. The 'perplexities' referred to are actually completely irrelevant. Read the book when you've got lots of time and are prepared to concentrate on light-hearted writing…. yeh, precisely…

'What these perplexities of my uncle Toby were, – 'tis impossible for you to guess; – If you could, – I should blush; not as a relation, – not as a man, – nor even as a woman, – but I should blush as an author; inasmuch as I set no small store by myself upon this very account, that my reader has never yet been able to guess at anything. And in this, Sir, I am of so nice and singular a humour, that if I thought you was able to form the least judgment or probable conjecture to yourself, of what was to come in the next page, – I would tear it out of my book'
