Daily Dose

From The Sayings of Dorothy Parker, edited by S. T. Brownlow


"Attending a party with Somerset Maugham at which guests were asked to complete nursery rhymes:

Somerset Maugham: 'Higgledy piggledy, my white hen
 She lays eggs for gentlemen.'

Dorothy Parker: 'You cannot persuade her with gun or lariat
To come across for the proletariat.'"
