End of September 26 Column (No. 844)
 This and That


From Tom Rush in his weekly newsletter, some funny ones:

He has no enemies, but is intensely disliked by his friends."
- Oscar Wilde

"He had delusions of adequacy."
- Walter Kerr

"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go."
 - Oscar Wilde

"I've had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn't it."
 - Groucho Marx

From my friend Clark Smith:

 “Lord, grant me patience. For if you grant me strength, I will also need bail money.”
-the Book of Comic Prayer

From my UPI chat group:

“Who, in their right mind, Kevin, could possibly deny (that) the 20th century was entirely mine? All of it, Kevin! Mine!”
- Al Pacino, playing Satan, in the movie  The Devil's Advocate.

Readers of this column surely remember Dan Quayle’s term as vice president) He was described in my UPI chat group as,“not only almost cutely benign in retrospect, but a minor hero of Jan 6 [He advised Pence not to try to overthrow the election results].”

Here’s a collection of Quayle quotations collected by Associate Professor of Finance Rauli Susmel from the University of Houston C. T. Bauer College of Business.
