Quote of the day

 Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone. Dorothy Parker who was born on this day in 1893.

She also said:

If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they’re happy.

And:

I hate writing, I love having written.

And:

There’s a hell of a distance between wise-cracking and wit. Wit has truth in it; wise-cracking is simply calisthenics with words.

And:

That would be a good thing for them to cut on my tombstone: Wherever she went, including here, it was against her better judgment.
