Famous quotes containing the words club and/or jockey:

    I think there ought to be a club in which preachers and journalists could come together and have the sentimentalism of the one matched with the cynicism of the other. That ought to bring them pretty close to the truth.
    Reinhold Niebuhr (1892–1971)

    Radio news is bearable. This is due to the fact that while the news is being broadcast the disc jockey is not allowed to talk.
    Fran Lebowitz (b. 1951)
