I might have posted this before but it is a bee in my bonnet.

IThe quote is something like this:
Style is what distinguishes the lithe movements of the panther from the gibbering of the monkey
I thought Sontag in her essay "On Style" but I can't find it there (don't mean it isn't there, just means I can't find it)

Any ideas? Where might I post the question?

Tnx.

Tried, but couldn't find that one. But I did find another good quote for you:
Yeah I pronounce it ‘pasketti’. Why? Is there another way?
— Albert Einstein
A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.

We please our fancy with ideal webs
Of innovation, but our life meanwhile
Is in the loom, where busy passion plies
The shuttle to and fro, and gives our deeds
The accustomed pattern.
Elliott - Daniel Deronda

I used this for my maiden speech at the ARF back in the days of Radio. The audience was not amused.

You miss Mr. Blackwell don't you? His birthday was August 29.

No ed, you've got it all wrong. I could have sworn it was a Blackwell.
