The football season is like pain. You forget how terrible it is until it seizes you again.
She was so much fun. She had a great sense of humor
She, I'm sure, is partially responsible for him being re-elected, and I think that she knows that. And I think that has given her an enormous amount of confidence.
I suspect she and the chef did not see eye-to-eye, and that is the kind of thing that happens. So much of this is chemistry and personality. So I am sure they will get another chef and I am sure the food will be fine.
I would say I think it's about time. People have a tendency to think that entertaining in Washington politically and diplomatically is frivolous, but it is not. It is part of the work.
Americans are always taken by royalty
There was a feeling all along here that they (Charles and Camilla) were in love with each other and they should get married.
I don't think anybody's going to be dancing on tables
People always have thought that the White House was the center of Washington, but it was Kay's house, ... It seems really unthinkable that she's not there anymore, that that big house on the hill will be empty.
When I met Little Edie, she was clearly nuts, but there were flashes of charm and style. When I agreed to buy the house, I said that I would take it on the condition that either she leave it broom-clean - which was laughable - or that she leave it all ... and she chose to leave everything.
Pay attention to me.
Even Colin Powell who was everywhere before he became secretary of state, just stopped going out. I think part of it was he didn't want to be viewed suspiciously by the other people in the White House who rarely go anywhere.
Funny you mention my dinner parties when I have just suggested that inviting close friends over to share a meal with candlelight and wine at your table could be a form of religious experience for some people. To me it's a form of sacrament.
I first came on the scene during the Johnson years and that crowd was out all the time enjoying themselves. Nixon wasn't particularly social but a lot of the people in his administration were.
Most of the people who live in Washington come from other places and you can learn something from them.
