    If it were not for the company of fools, a witty man would often be greatly at a loss.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Frank Moore Colby (1865–1925)

    I do not mind if I lose my soul for all eternity. If the kind of God exists Who would damn me for not working out a deal with Him, then that is unfortunate. I should not care to spend eternity in the company of such a person.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)
