"I must start wearing a watch. I never have you know."
Bette Davis

Russell Lynes

A truly appreciative child will break, lose, spoil, or fondle to death any really successful gift within a matter of minutes.
Russell Lynes

Any real New Yorker is a you-name-it-we-have-it-snob whose heart brims with sympathy for the millions of unfortunates who through misfortune, misguidedness or pure stupidity live anywhere else in the world.
Russell Lynes

Russell Lynes

Russell Lynes

Russell Lynes

The Art Snob can be recognized in the home by the quick look he gives the pictures on your walls, quick but penetrating, as though he were undressing them. This is followed either by complete and pained silence or a comment such as "That's really a very pleasant little water color you have there."
Russell Lynes

The bungalow had more to do with how Americans live today than any other building that has gone remotely by the name of architecture in our history.
Russell Lynes

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

The true snob never rests; there is always a higher goal to attain, and there are, by the same token, always more and more people to look down upon.
Russell Lynes

There are times when you just get down, you feel like nobody likes you. We're in high school forever. It's just what we do with it.
Russell Lynes

What we are headed for is a sort of social structure in which the highbrows are the elite, the middlebrows are the bourgeoisie and the lowbrows are hoi polloi.
Russell Lynes

When it gets dark enough you can see the stars.
