Noël Coward
“Work hard, do the best you can, don't ever lose faith in yourself and take no notice of what other people say about you.”
Noël Coward

Amy Sedaris
“I’ve named everything that I’ve ever owned. Real or inanimate, I have to give it a first and last name. Everything in my apartment comes alive at night.”
Amy Sedaris

Amy Sedaris
“In all the land there is only one you, possibly two, but seldom more than sixteen.”
Amy Sedaris, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence

David Sedaris
“All these young mothers chauffeuring their volcanic three-year-olds through the grocery store. The child's name always sounds vaguely presidental, and he or she tends to act accordingly. "Mommy hears what you're saying about treats," the woman will say, "But right now she needs you to let go of her hair and put the chocolate-covered Life Savers back where they came from."

"No!" screams McKinley or Madison, Kennedy or Lincoln or beet-faced baby Reagan. Looking on, I always want to intervene. "Listen," I'd like to say, "I'm not a parent myself, but I think the best solution at this point is to slap that child across the face. It won't stop its crying, but at least now it'll be doing it for a good reason.”
David Sedaris, Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls
