Famous quotes containing the word axelrod:

    José’s my first non-rat romance. Not that he’s my idea of the absolute finito. He’s too prim and cautious to be my absolute ideal, Now, if I could choose from anybody alive, I wouldn’t pick José. Nehru, maybe, or Albert Schweitzer. Or Leonard Bernstein.
    —George Axelrod (b. 1922)
