Famous quotes by ogden nash:

    You scour the Bowery, ransack the Bronx,
    Through funeral parlors and honky-tonks.
    From river to river you comb the town
    For a place to lay your family down.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    Camped on a tropic riverside,
    One day he missed his loving bride.
    She had, the guide informed him later,
    Been eaten by an alligator.
    Professor Twist could not but smile.
    ‘You mean,’ he said, ‘a crocodile.’
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    The pirate gaped at Belinda’s dragon,
    And gulped some grog from his pocket flagon,
    He fired two bullets, but they didn’t hit,
    And Custard gobbled him, every bit.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    Children aren’t happy with nothing to ignore,
    And that’s what parents were created for.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    Is dandy
    But Liquor
    Is quicker.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)
