[‘Patter’ is the title of a page of collected quotes and epigrams from The Reader’s Digest, probably the February 1942 issue, that Jupp cut out and glued into his notebook. Quoted here are epigrams he marked as important or noteworthy.]
“It’s not how old you are but how you are old.” ~ Marie Dressler
Some men grow under responsibility, others only swell.
Social tact is making your company feel at home, even though you wish they were.
If you think politics easy, try standing on a fence while keeping one ear to the ground.
