    Newsmen believe that news is a tacitly acknowledged fourth branch of the federal system. This is why most news about government sounds as if it were federally mandated—serious, bulky and blandly worthwhile, like a high-fiber diet set in type.

    The formula for achieving a successful relationship is simple: you should treat all disasters as if they were trivialities but never treat a triviality as if it were a disaster.
    Quentin Crisp (b. 1908)

    A young person is a person with nothing to learn
    One who already knows that ice does not chill and fire does not burn . . .
    It knows it can spend six hours in the sun on its first
    day at the beach without ending up a skinless beet,
    And it knows it can walk barefoot through the barn
    without running a nail in its feet. . . .
    Meanwhile psychologists grow rich
    Writing that the young are ones’ should not
    undermine the self-confidence of which.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    Your good mother tells me you are feeling very badly in your new situation. Allow me to assure you it is a perfect certainty that you will, very soon, feel better—quite happy—if you only stick to the resolution you have taken to procure a military education. I am older than you, have felt badly myself, and know, what I tell you is true. Adhere to your purpose and you will soon feel as well as you ever did.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    If you insist on asking me why I feel the way I do, I plan to take the Fifth Amendment.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    No one can be profoundly original who does not avoid eccentricity.
    André Maurois (1885–1967)

    During Prohibition days, when South Carolina was actively advertising the iodine content of its vegetables, the Hell Hole brand of ‘liquid corn’ was notorious with its waggish slogan: ‘Not a Goiter in a Gallon.’
    —Administration in the State of Sout, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
