Three Quotes

  1. You should tell the truth as often as you can, but in such a way as people don’t believe you or think that you’re being funny.
  2. I don’t suppose there has been a moment in the world’s history where more people felt themselves to be artists, of when less art was produced.
  3. Anyone wishing to communicate with Americans should do so by e-mail, which has been specially invented for the purpose, involving neither physical proximity nor speech.
