Creative Quotations from . . .
Ogden Nash
(1902-1971) born on
Aug 19
US poet. He was noted for off-beat poems like "Candy is Dandy, But Liquor Is Quicker."
And one of his partners asked "Has he vertigo?" and the other glanced out and down and said "Oh no, only about ten feet more."

Man is a victim of dope
In the incurable form of hope.
What chills the finger not a bit
Is so frigid upon the fundament.
To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you're wrong, admit it;
Whenever you're right, shut up.
Why did the Lord give us so much quickness of movement unless it was to avoid responsibility?
