Famous quotes containing the words recorded and/or repertoire:
“The force of truth that a statement imparts, then, its prominence among the hordes of recorded observations that I may optionally apply to my own life, depends, in addition to the sense that it is argumentatively defensible, on the sense that someone like me, and someone I like, whose voice is audible and who is at least notionally in the same room with me, does or can possibly hold it to be compellingly true.”
—Nicholson Baker (b. 1957)
“The best joke-tellers are those who have the patience to wait for conversation to come around to the point where the jokes in their repertoire have application.”
—Joseph Epstein (b. 1937)
