Description
Read by the most sophisticated audiences in the world, Will Rogers also spoke to and for the great normal majority. He tackled the most complex ideas and cut them down to size. A flying reporter, he traveled the world and wrote about events as if they were happening in the next county. Since the Will Rogers Memorial opened in November, 1938, many of the 25 million visitors to the shrine have asked for his gags, his jokes or his sayings. Thousands of other folk have written to ask what Rogers had to say on particular topics - what sage remarks he made on Hoover, taxes, the depression or Hollywood, among other things. Choice bits of his wit and wisdom on many subjects fill the pages of this book. Selected by the Memorial staff members from collected writings of Will Rogers (in 22 volumes), the sayings will make you nod your head and say, You know, he's right about that You will want to repeat them to friends over coffee. You can use them to spice up a speech or a column. Or to do your heart good as you chuckle to yourself on a long plane trip.
