An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown

He is the last private man, the dream we no longer admit.


Joan Didion (1934-, American essayist)

John Kenneth Galbraith (1908-, American economist)


I wasn't satisfied just to earn a good living. I was looking to make a statement.


Donald Trump (1946-, American businessman, actor)
