SOME THOUGHTS ON SERIOUSNESS AND FRIVOLITY

"In real life, she's the last person from whom one will get a lecture 
on women's issues, global warming, refugees, or the Bush administration. 
Of course she has intelligent opinions about all the above, but far be it from her 
to ruin a perfectly good luncheon trying to prove she's a serious person."

- Jonathan van Meter


"In all of life, we must rid ourselves of anything 
akin to contempt prior to investigation.
It is provincialism disguised as intellectualism.
Practice big thinking, beginning with the clothes you try on."
- Mrs. Exeter




"It seems that an age of genius must be preceded by an age of endeavor;
riot and extravagance by cleanliness and hard work."

- Virginia Woolf
