More From Fran Lebowitz
- "You can’t go around hoping that most people have sterling moral characters. The most you can hope for is that people will pretend that they do."
- "My desire to curtail undue freedom of speech extends only to such public areas as restaurants, airports, streets, hotel lobbies, parks, and department stores. Verbal exchanges between consenting adults in private are as of little interest to me as they probably are to them."
- "I must take issue with the term ‘a mere child,’ for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult."
