Quote of the Day (S.J. Perelman, on Nature Writers)

“Most of the handbooks on country living are written by flabby men at the Waldorf-Astoria, who lie in bed and dictate them to secretaries. The greatest naturalist I know lives in a penthouse overlooking Central Park. He hasn't raised his window shades in twenty years.”—Humorist/screenwriter S.J. Perelman (1904-1979), Acres and Pains (1947)
