“A country that is big enough to give you anything you want is large enough to take everything you have, including, perhaps, your life.”

“I don’t worry about getting old. I’m old already. Only young people worry about getting old.”

“If you live to the age of a hundred you have it made because very few people die past the age of a hundred.”

“The secret of a good sermon is to have a good beginning and a good ending; and to have the two as close together as possible.”

“Too bad the only people who know how to run the country are busy driving cabs and cutting hair.”
