Bouquet of Babes

Arnold Bennett visited George Bernard Shaw in his apartment and, knowing his host’s love of flowers, was surprised that there was not a singe vase of flowers to be seen. He remarked on their absence to Shaw: “But I though you were so fond of flowers.”

“I am,’ said Shaw, “and I’m very fond of children too, but I don’t chop their heads off and stand them in pots about the house.”
