"Any great truth can -- and eventually will -- be expressed as a cliche --
a cliche is a sure and certain way to dilute an idea.  For instance,
my grandmother used to say, 'The black cat is always the last one off
the fence.'  I have no idea what she meant, but at one time, it was
undoubtedly true."



"I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of
fools. Let's start with typewriters."



"The only winner in the War of 1812 was Tchaikovsky"
