David Sedaris, Naked

“Whenever you entertain the Bunch,
Always plan to have a punch.”
Mary Jane Remole, Mary Jane's Cookbook: From the Heart of America

Dean Koontz
“These days, all I ask of Fate is that the people she hurls into my life, whether they are evil or good, or morally bipolar, should be amusing to one degree or another. This is a big request to make of busy Fate, who has billions of lives to keep in constant turmoil.”
Dean Koontz, Brother Odd

Margaret Atwood
“Have I been conditioned to believe that if I am not solicitous, if I am not forthcoming, if I am not a never-ending cornicopia of entertaining delights, they will take their collections of milk-bottle tops and their mangy one-eared teddy bears and go away into the woods by themselves to play snipers? Probably. What my mother things was merely cute may have been lethal.”
Margaret Atwood, Bluebeard's Egg

Kate White
“She had her sonar continually set for excuses to entertain, to bring together influential and powerful people in a mix that hummed, sizzled, throbbed, and sometimes burst into flames. But I was delighted to be her excuse tonight.”
Kate White, Eyes on You

Budd Schulberg
“First, no qualms. Not the thinnest sliver of misgiving about the value of his work. He was able to feel that the most important job in the world was putting over Monsoon. In the second place, he was as uninhibited as a performing seal. He never questioned his right to monopolize conversations or his ability to do it entertainingly. And then there was his colossal lack of perspective. This was one of his most valuable gifts, for perspective doesn't always pay. It can slow you down.”
Budd Schulberg, What Makes Sammy Run?

Steven Magee
“Publishing is definitely something you do because you enjoy educating or entertaining people.”
Steven Magee

Ayn Rand
“...the literary manifestation of the mind-body dichotomy that dominates today's culture: the split between the "serious" and the "entertaining" - the belief that if a literary work is "serious," it must bore people to death; and if it is "entertaining," it must not communicate anything of importance. (Which means that "the good" has to be painful, and that pleasure has to be mindlessly low-grade.)”
Ayn Rand, The Night of January 16th

Jennifer L. Armentrout
“We’re probably leaving soon,” Rider said. “Might catch a movie.”
Jayden leaned against the wall as he looked around the room. “I see how it is. You figure you don’t stand a chance with Mallory now that I’m here to show her what a real man looks like.” He winked as Rider just shook his head. “Fine, leave. But no dumb movie will be as entertainin’ as the Jayden Show. And I don’t charge admission.”
Jennifer L. Armentrout, The Problem with Forever

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“There is no such thing as a boring person when you are lonely or extremely bored.”
