Lou Holtz Quote
Martin Chuzzlewit (1844), Chapter XXVII
“When they see us coming, the birdies all try an' hide,
But they still go for peanuts when coated with cyanide.
My pulse will be quickenin',
With each drop of strych-a-nine,
We feed to a pigeon
it just takes a smidgen
To poison a pigeon in the park.”
Poisoning Pigeons in the Park - An Evening (Wasted) With Tom Lehrer (1959)
“Of course, we need not be surprised if artistic excellence goes unrecognized on account of being unknown; but there should be the greatest indignation when, as often, good judges are flattered by the charm of social entertainments into an approbation which is a mere a pretence.”
Book III, Introduction, Sec. 3 - The Ten Books On Architecture
The Rest is Silence - Music at Night and Other Essays (1931)
