1[on the Viet Nam War] There's nothing more brutalizing than to order men into battle and then pick up the phone from the Pentagon and find out how many were lost that day. I once asked [President] Johnson 'how do you stand it?'. And he said it was like drinking carbolic acid every morning. When he couldn't sleep, he'd wander the White House with a flashlight, visiting the portrait of Woodrow Wilson who had been paralyzed by a stroke while in office. Or he would go the the Situation Room at 3 a.m. because there would always be people there with the latest news and body counts.
2If I hunker down, as LBJ used to say, like a jackass in a hailstorm and wait till the storm passes, it's going to be all right. If I look down on a day or two, I know on the third day I'm gonna start rising again.
3The professional does his job right every time, without regard for anything else.
4Getting Cary Grant to pick up the restaurant check was a miracle few had ever witnessed.
5I never fathomed James Joyce.
