Résumé
Razors pain you,
Rivers are damp,
Acids stain you,
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful,
Nooses give,
Gas smells awful.
You might as well live.”
Dorothy Parker, Enough Rope
“If I didn't care for fun and such,
I'd probably amount to much.
But I shall stay the way I am,
Because I do not give a damn.”
Dorothy Parker, Enough Rope
“Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,
a medley of extemporanea,
And love is a thing that can never go wrong,
and I am Marie of Romania.”
Dorothy Parker, Enough Rope

Some men fawn and flatter,
Some men never look at you;
And that cleans up the matter.”

“The sweeter the apple, the blacker the core. Scratch a lover and find a foe!”

“Once, when I was young and true.
Someone left me sad -
Broke my brittle heart in two;
And that is very bad.

Love is for unlucky folk,
Love is but a curse.
Once there was a heart I broke;
And that, I think, is worse.”
Dorothy Parker, Enough Rope
“When I was young and bold and strong,
Oh, right was right, and wrong was wrong!”
Dorothy Parker, Enough Rope
“Oh, gallant was the first love, and glittering and fine;
The second love was water, in a clear white cup;
The third love was his, and the fourth was mine;
And after that, I always get them all mixed up.”
Dorothy Parker, Enough Rope
