Calvin Coolidge
There is a song from one of our not new musicals about girls which says something about ‘the short, the fat, the lean, the tall; I don’t give a rap, I love them all.’ That is the way I feel about people, and I have been fortunate in being placed where I had an opportunity to gratify my taste by meeting great numbers of them.
