Nymph Quotations

Every man needs two women: a quiet home-maker, and a thrilling nymph.
Iris Murdoch

I'm part wood nymph. I require mountains and warm, dense patches of moss to thrive.
Vera Farmiga

Reason is a supple nymph, and slippery as a fish by nature. She had as leave give her kiss to an absurdity any day, as to syllogistic truth. The absurdity may turn out truer.
D. H. Lawrence

So, when I say 'match the hatch', if the fish are taking the nymph, and you're actually producing a replica of a flying insect, you'll catch fresh air.
Rex Hunt
