There may be nothing lofty in the sentiment, or fine in the expression, but it is careless country talk.

    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
    Julius J. Epstein, screenwriter, Philip Epstein, screenwriter, Howard Koch, screenwriter, and Michael Curtiz. Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart)

    —William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
