Famous quotes containing the words russell lynes, russell and/or lynes:

    There is a distinction to be drawn between true collectors and accumulators. Collectors are discriminating; accumulators act at random. The Collyer brothers, who died among the tons of newspapers and trash with which they filled every cubic foot of their house so that they could scarcely move, were a classic example of accumulators, but there are many of us whose houses are filled with all manner of things that we “can’t bear to throw away.”
    Russell Lynes (1910–1991)

    They talk about their Pilgrim blood,
    Their birthright high and holy!
    A mountain-stream that ends in mud
    Methinks is melancholy.
    —James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)

    The only gracious way to accept an insult is to ignore it; if you can’t ignore it, top it; if you can’t top it, laugh at it; if you can’t laugh at it, it’s probably deserved.
    —Russell Lynes (b. 1910)
