„Moderní manžel je muž, který už jako hoch dělal vždy to, co chtěli jeho rodiče; který později udělal to, co chtěla manželka; který dnes dělá to, co chtějí jeho děti a který patrně nikdy nebude moci dělat to, co by sám chtěl.“

„USA znají odpověď. Jak zněla otázka?“


„Vysvětlil jsem mu, že mám prostý vkus a že si nepřejí nic nápadného, ať to stojí cokoli.“

„Whether it is the best of times or the worst of times, it is the only time we have.“

„The best things in life aren't things.“

„We seem to be going through a period of nostalgia, and everyone seems to think yesterday was better than today. I don't think it was, and I would advise you not to wait ten years before admitting today was great. If you're hung up on nostalgia, pretend today is yesterday and just go out and have one hell of a time.“

„And Man created the plastic bag and the tin and aluminum can and the cellophane wrapper and the paper plate, and this was good because Man could then take his automobile and buy all his food in one place and He could save that which was good to eat in the refrigerator and throw away that which had no further use. And soon the earth was covered with plastic bags and aluminum cans and paper plates and disposable bottles and there was nowhere to sit down or walk, and Man shook his head and cried: "Look at this Godawful mess.“

„I have no idea where I'm going but here's the real question: What am I doing here in the first place?“

„Dinner is not what you do in the evening before something else. Dinner is the evening.“

„Writers are funny about reviews: when they get a good one they ignore it-- but when they get a bad review they never forget it. Every writer I know is the same way: you get a hundred good reviews, and one bad, andyou remember only the bad. For years, you go on and fantasize about the reviewer who didn't like your book; you imagine him as a jerk, a wife-beater, a real ogre. And, in the meantime, the reviewer has forgotten all about the whole thing. But, twenty years later, the writer still remembers that one bad review.“


„Americans are just beginning to regard food the way the French always have. Dinner is not what you do in the evening before something else. Dinner is the evening.“

„Dying is easy; parking is impossible.“ Too Soon to Say Goodbye

„Hunting Down the Secular Humanists" "... What makes them so dangerous is that Secular Humanists look just like you and me. Some of them could be your best friends without you knowing that they are Humanists. They could come into your house, play with your children, eat your food and even watch football with you on television, and you'd never know they have read Catcher in the Rye, Brave New World, and Huckleberry Finn....
No one is safe until Congress sets up an Anti-Secular Humanism Committee to get at the rot. Witnesses have to be called, and they have to name names.“

„The irony of our culture is that people are constantly telling other people to go to hell, but no one tells them to go to heaven.“ Too Soon to Say Goodbye
