Quote of the Day (Robert Morley, on Why ‘Americans Make the Best Fans’)

“Americans make the best fans, perhaps because they always seem to have time on their hands. The native young pound along behind, thrust a cigarette into one’s hand, and are off back to the shop. Worst of all are the temporarily incapacitated who demand you sign the plaster on the fractured limb. I find it well nigh impossible to scratch on plaster of Paris, yet others seem to manage.”—English stage and screen actor (and longtime fixture in British Airways commercials) Robert Morley (1908-1992), The Best of Robert Morley (1981)
