The Thinker by Rodin

Sidney Sheldon, creator of “I Dream Of Jeannie” and novelist, “The Other Side Of Midnight”, “Rage Of Angels” advice to writers, ” Don’t talk about writing…Do It!”

A long time ago, Quncy Jones gave me a tip on how to deal effectively with Hollywood producers, “Use “fuck” in your conversation every once in a while to get their attention!”

On people who give advice and expect other people to listen. Singer and songwriter, Jim Croce (“Don’t Mess Around With Jim”, “Operator”) used to say,” You can’t tell anybody anything…people have to come to their own conclusions!”

The Paul Mc Cartney of the Present, should have listened more carefully to the Paul McCartney of the past, and signed the prenuptual agreement! “Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play…now I need a place to hide away…oh I believe in Yesterday!”

“When she started to play, Steinway himself came down personally and rubbed his name off the piano. ” — Bob Hope, on comedienne Phyllis Diller-submitted by Eddie Hodges

Patti Dahlstrom turned me on to a couple of songwriter, Paul Williams’ best quotes… “There are those who listen, and those who wait to talk.”

“Every time God closes a door, he opens another, but the time in the hallway is a bitch!”

Patti also submitted this from ‘The Lives Of Lazarus Long” by Robert Heinlein

“Before you appeal to someone’s higher nature, you better make sure that they have one.”
