Quotes from the lips of Dorothy Parker

I know that there are things that never have been funny, and never will be. And I know that ridicule may be a shield, but it is not a weapon.

You can't teach an old dogma new tricks.

Women and elephants never forget.

I might repeat to myself slowly and soothingly, a list of quotations beautiful from minds profound -- if I can remember any of the damn things.

Four be the things I'd have been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles and doubt.

A girl's best friend is her mutter.

I require only three things of a man. He must be handsome, ruthless and stupid.

Take care of luxuries and the necessities will take care of themselves.

Salary is no object; I want only enough to keep body and soul apart.

Money cannot buy health, but I'd settle for a diamond-studded wheelchair.

If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to.

The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.
