Dorothy Parker's Birthday

Dorothy Parker (August 22, 1893–June 7, 1967) was an American writer and poet, best known for her caustic wit, wisecracks, and sharp eye for 20th century urban foibles.

When she was asked to use the word horticulture in a sentence, Parker shot back, "You can lead a horticulture but you can't make her think."

  1. Oh I love Dorothy Parker.
    One of my faves is Eat,drink, make love the whole night through
    for tomorrow we shall die.
    Alas we never do.
