Quote of the Day (Robert Benchley, on Dogs, Boys and Stocks)

“[A] dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance, and to turn around three times before lying down—very important traits in times like these. In fact, just as soon as a dog comes along who, in addition to these qualities, also knows when to buy and sell stocks, he can be moved right up to the boy's bedroom and the boy can sleep in the dog house.”— Robert Benchley, "Your Boy and His Dog," in Chips Off the Old Benchley (1949)
