Froth at the top, dregs at bottom, but the middle excellent.
Being a journalist is good if you want to write books: it teaches you to get beyond the blank screen. My books have been described as froth, but there's scope to be witty and ironic about everything in life. Sophie Kinsella
History is just this froth of artifact production that has appeared in the last ten to fifteen thousand years. It spread across the planet very quickly. But that mind in man just goes back and back into the darkness. Terence McKenna
A nation without dregs and malcontents is orderly, peaceful and pleasant, but perhaps without the seed of things to come. Eric Hoffer
If you desire to drain to the dregs the fullest cup of scorn and hatred that a fellow human being can pour out for you, let a young mother hear you call dear baby 'it.' T. S. Eliot
