Cyril_Connolly Always be nice to those younger than you, because they are the ones who will be writing about you. Paul_Fussell I find nothing more depressing than optimism. Dan_Quayle One word sums up probably the responsibility of any vice president, and that one word is 'to be prepared'. Kurt_Vonnegut Any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae.
