Gentlemen of Nerve


Reference


Gentlemen of Nerve by Charles Chaplin, 1914:



"There came an evening during my novitiate when, after being fed but lightly, I was taken to a Chamber, and there laced into an expensive Corset, black as Midnight, imported, I was told, from Paris, from the very workshop of the Corsetier to the Queen. They painted my face into a wanton Sister of itself, showing me, in a Hand-Mirror,— 'twas a Woman I'd never seen before,— whom, upon the Instant, sinfully, I desir'd."
— Thomas Pynchon, Mason & Dixon
