Famous quotes containing the words ogden nash and/or nash:

    The moral is that it is probably better not to sin at all, but if
    some kind of sin you must be pursuing,
    Well, remember to do it by doing rather than by not doing.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    Being a father
    Is quite a bother . . .
    You improve them mentally
    And straighten them dentally, . . .
    They’re no longer corralable
    Once they find that you’re fallible . . .
    But after you’ve raised them and educated them and
    gowned them,
    They just take their little fingers and wrap you around
    Being a father
    Is quite a bother,
    But I like it, rather.
    —Ogden Nash (1902–1971)
