Famous quotes containing the words airport and/or bologna:
“Airplanes are invariably scheduled to depart at such times as 7:54, 9:21 or 11:37. This extreme specificity has the effect on the novice of instilling in him the twin beliefs that he will be arriving at 10:08, 1:43 or 4:22, and that he should get to the airport on time. These beliefs are not only erroneous but actually unhealthy.”
—Fran Lebowitz (b. 1950)
“I come from a long line of male chauvinists in a very traditional family. To rebel against my background, I didnt shoot dopeI married a working woman.”
—Joe Bologna (20th century)
