    Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs at one go.
    Truman Capote (1924–1984)

    It’s like a jumble of huts in a jungle somewhere. I don’t understand how you can live there. It’s really, completely dead. Walk along the street, there’s nothing moving. I’ve lived in small Spanish fishing villages which were literally sunny all day long everyday of the week, but they weren’t as boring as Los Angeles.
    —Truman Capote (1924–1984)

    Study men, not historians.
    —Harry S. Truman (1884–1972)
