Default Obnoxiously difficult quotes

There's been so much talk of hard quotes, and people's lists, maybe we can share some of ours.

Here's a starter set.

Alexander Pope: Fix'd like a plant on his peculiar spot, to draw nutrition, propagate, and rot.

Robert Orden: Time flies. It's up to you to be the navigator.

Dorothy Parker: They sicken of the calm that know the storm.

Unattributed: I am a Marxist...of the Groucho tendency.

Gilbert Chesterton: All slang is metaphor, and all metaphor is poetry.

Ernest Dimnet: All serious conversations gravitate towards philosophy.

John Ruskin: Life without industry is guilt. Industry without art is brutality.
