BTNG Diane Easby - 'Countess Richard' ill (146* d) RE: Diane Easby - 'Countess Richard' ill 18 Nov 11


There are two of us, and possibly a third, who know why I'm posting these to quotes from the American wit, Dorothy Parker

    Drink and dance and laugh and lie,
    Love, the reeling midnight through,
    For tomorrow we shall die!
    (But, alas, we never do.)
       "The Flaw in Paganism" in Death and Taxes (1931)

and, Diane, you never will :-)

    There's a hell of a distance between wise-cracking and wit. Wit has truth in it; wise-cracking is simply calisthenics with words.
       Interview, Paris Review (Summer 1956)
