Groucho Speaks

Outside a dog, a book is man's best friend.Inside a dog, it's too dark to read.

Editor JDC,

"Already been there and didn't like it."

Your essay is on my to-read list. I have to get two stories done before my B-day and free up my distracted mind.

Get back to work - both of you!

That's one of my favourite Groucho quotes, actually I'll crown it my favourite as I don't know that many.

Dale,

Until today, that was my second favorite Groucho line. The first of course was "I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member."

This was allegedly in reference to a country club that turned down his application for a membership, because some of the people on the acceptance committee were anti-Semites. When his television show became a hit, they tried to invite him back and that was his response.

That's not just my favorite Groucho quote, but one of my all time favorite quotes. :)

Princess,

What amazes me is that everyone seems to identify it, even those who have it entirely too easy in life.
