«[There are] two rules for getting on well with people that speak Spanish: give the men tobacco and leave the women alone»

«He stayed as he was told. That´s the rarest thing that can happen in Spain.»

«French would saved [the bottle of whisky] what was left for another occasion. No, the true thoughfulness of thinking the visitor would like it then bringing it down for him to enjoy when you yourself were engaged in something where there was every reason to think of no one else but yourself and of nothing but the matter in hand- that was Spanish. [..] One of the reasons you loved this people.»
