Quote 151

"I also found myself un-married about 20 years ago but I let the housework do itself.  If you open all the windows on a windy day, the dust balls roll around the house like tumbleweed and collect in the corners.  The ants eat most of the food off the dishes so I don't have to wash them (sometimes, they get stuck in the syrup but I just brush them off into the dustbin). The dog takes care of the cat box for me.  I have my own unique eco system here.  Would you like to come to visit sometime?"

"In battle, in forest, at the precipice of the mountains, on the dark great sea, in the midst of javelins and arrows, in sleep, in confusion, in the depths of shame, the good deeds a man has done defend him."

In his memoir, “Gaily, Gaily", Ben Hecht describes his years as a cub reporter at The Chicago Daily Journal starting in 1910. The first thing Hecht did was get his girlfriend, who was “in harlot servitude” when they met, hired as the “first girl reporter” at the paper for $12 a week by pretending she was a Van Arsdale who was a niece of Edith Wharton.

When she got caught selling her services in the newsroom, Hecht’s cynical Irish editor advised him that reforming women was a time-waster.

Quote 115

"...but do you believe your actions in this life make a difference in the world to come?'
"If we're going to be judged on something in the afterlife, I think it'll probably be our inaction's. It's not difficult to live a pious life, if you think about it, imagining you'll be saved if you stick to a few rules. But think of all the good things you could have done but didn't because you were too lazy or complacent. I think we'll be judged on our potential."
