„Vynález minisukně je stejným pokrokem v módě jako v technice konstrukce parolodi, o jejích výhodách se její vynálezce Robert Fulton svého času vyjádřil takto: "Nyní nejsme již závislí na tom, až zafouká vítr.“

„Everybody was being decent, and when people are decent, thing work out for everybody. That has been my theory all through life. If you’re making money, let the other fellow make it too. If somebody’s getting hurt, it’s bad, but if you can work a thing out so that everybody profits that’s the ideal business.“ At Random: The Reminiscences of Bennett Cerf


„When people are decent, things work out for everybody,” my father instructs us. “That’s been my theory all through life. If you’re making money, let the other fellow make it, too.… If you can work a thing out so that everybody profits, that’s the ideal business.“ At Random: The Reminiscences of Bennett Cerf

„I can’t say this too often—that a little humor can make life worth living. That has always been my credo. Somebody once asked me, “What would you like your epitaph to be?” I’ve always said that I’d like it to be: “He left people a little happier than they were when he came into the room.“ At Random: The Reminiscences of Bennett Cerf

„Coleridge was a drug addict. Poe was an alcoholic. Marlowe was killed by a man whom he was treacherously trying to stab. Pope took money to keep a woman's name out of a satire, then wrote a piece so that she could still be recognized, anyhow. Chatterton killed himself. Byron was accused of incest. Do you still want to a writer -and if so, why?“
