Dorothy Parker

A bright lady whose birthday WAS yesterday.

Sampling:

By the time you swear you're his,
Shivering and sighing,
And he vows his passion is
Infinite, undying,
Lady, make a note of this —
One of you is lying.

If all the girls at Yale prom were laid end to end, I wouldn't be at all suprised.

If you want to know what the Lord God thinks of money, just look at those to whom he gives it

She must have done it sliding down a barrister. (On hearing an actress had broken her leg)

This is not a book to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force

Parker was a part of the Algonquin Round Table group which included Woollcott, Benchley, Kaufmann, and Ferber.

She was a tad cynical.

Anyone who pronounces the word as shedule is full of skit.
