    It’s better to star in Oshkosh than to starve on Broadway.
    James Gleason (1886–1959)

    Essential truth, the truth of the intellectualists, the truth with no one thinking it, is like the coat that fits tho no one has ever tried it on, like the music that no ear has listened to. It is less real, not more real, than the verified article; and to attribute a superior degree of glory to it seems little more than a piece of perverse abstraction-worship.
    —William James (1842–1910)

    Haggerty: Girls! Girls! Girls! Be careful of my hats.
    Chorus Girl: Well, we gotta get down on the stage.
    Haggerty: I don’t care. I won’t allow you to ruin them.
    Dressing Room Matron: See, I told you. They were too high and too wide.
    Haggerty: Well, Big Woman, I designed the costumes for the show, not the doors for the theater.
    Dressing Room Matron: I know that. If you had, they’d have been done in lavender.
    —James Gleason (1886–1959)
