    I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.
    Shirley Temple Black (b. 1928)

    Let no one think that I do not love the old ministers. They were, probably, the best men in their generation, and they deserve that their biographies should fill the pages of the town histories. If I could but hear the “glad tidings” of which they tell, and which, perchance, they heard, I might write in a worthier strain than this.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    America does to me what I knew it would do: it just bumps me.... The people charge at you like trucks coming down on you—no awareness. But one tries to dodge aside in time. Bump! bump! go the trucks. And that is human contact.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    “That’s where I reckon Santa Claus comes in
    To be our parents’ pseudonymity
    In Christmas giving, so they can escape
    The thanks and let him catch it as a scapegoat....”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe.
    Johnny Mercer (1909–1976)
