“In the struggle for survival, the cutest win out at the expense of the less cute because they appeal more to celebrities and, through them, to a live television audience.”
Garson O'Toole, Hemingway Didn't Say That: The Truth Behind Familiar Quotations

“In conclusion, Balzac did write a statement linking large fortunes to crime, but it was a nuanced remark about a subset of great fortunes.

Garson O'Toole, Hemingway Didn't Say That: The Truth Behind Familiar Quotations

“More than one hundred years before the citations above, in 1838, the American clergyman William Ellery Channing said the following:10 No power in society, no hardship in your condition can depress you, keep you down, in knowledge, power, virtue, influence, but by your own consent. Notes:”
