Phrase of the Day #138 May 26, 2007

Posted by Rambling Man in Say it like it is.

“I’ve had lots of kids come up and ask for my autograph, I’ve had a grandmother stop me and ask me if I know a good place to buy underwear.”

i’m reading “the judgment of paris” (about the birth of the impressionist movement in france) and came across a very similar-sounding quote from a famous artist of the time, Ernest Meissonier. “we should take an interest in the poor people. We should talk about their affairs with them. We should love them, and be beloved by them.”

sounds about as patronizing as prince will.
