A Literary Quote From C. Stavrianou, Sydney, Australia

This comes from C. Stavrianou, Sydney:

The cat (Behemoth) in The Master and Margarita facing interrogation from Satan / Woland regarding his choice of attire to Satan's ball:

"What the devil do you need the bow-tie for, when you're not even wearing trousers?"

"A cat is not supposed to wear trousers, Messire," the cat replied with great dignity. "You're not going to tell me to wear boots, too, are you? Puss-in-Boots exists only in fairy tales, Messire. But have you ever seen anyone at a ball without a bow-tie? I do not intend to put myself in a ridiculous situation and risk being chucked out! Everyone adorns himself with what he can"
