    Lars Jorgensen: It’s this country killed my boy. Yes, by golly, I tell you Ethan—
    Mrs. Jorgensen: Now Lars. It just so happens we be Texicans. A Texican is nothing but a human man way out on a limb, this year, and next, maybe for a hundred more.

    Frank S. Nugent (1908–1965)

    Love’s the only thing I’ve thought of or read about since I was knee-high. That’s what I always dreamed of, of meeting somebody and falling in love.

    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)
