acidity & pigsty

Quotations:

Complete Works of Virginia Woolf:

"There never will be a book, because some one else has written it for him," said Mr. Pepper with considerable acidity. "That's what comes of putting things off, and collecting fossils, and sticking Norman arches on one's pigsties." 

Definitions:

acidity:
1. an unfriendly and cruel quality in written or spoken words;
2. the concentration of acid in a substance, of which PH is a measure;

pigsty: 
1. a small building or a confined area where pigs are kept;
2. a very dirty or untidy place.
