The Venetians [entertain] themselves at our expense… We are their staple of amusement. -Mary McCarthy

‚Ķabove all, for the Venetian delectation, there are the foreigners. The Venetians have been entertaining themselves at our expense, ever since the limping Lord Byron obliged them by swimming the Grand Canal and George Sand in man’s clothes stayed at Danieli’s with Musset. We are their staple of amusement. -by Mary McCarthy
