“You are a mousetrap of a friend, all soft cheese and hard springs”
Chris Cleave, Everyone Brave is Forgiven

Harry Kemelman
“You know, we have a saying that other people boast of the beauty of their women; we boast of our old men.”
Harry Kemelman, Saturday the Rabbi Went Hungry

“Palmer? Would you bring us a little brandy?” Back the pewter tray came, with glasses and decanters. Palmer set it down on the occasional table and let a measure of syrup into each of two glasses. He scalped an orange and placed a shaving of peel in each glass. These he compressed with a pestle sufficiently to release their oils but not to macerate them.

“Death is nothing at all. It does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Everything remains as it was. The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no sorrow in your tone.

Martin Short, I Must Say: My Life as a Humble Comedy Legend

Doris Kearns Goodwin, Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream
