I think I wish I had never spanked my children, but I have. And they remember every instance like they tattooed it on their palms.

I try to live my life as honestly as I can, and the last thing I want is to pretend to be something I'm not. To pretend to myself I am a sex symbol would somehow be dishonest. I'd feel, in my heart, that I were behaving artificially and that's the last thing I want to do.
When lying, be emphatic and indignant, thus behaving like your children.
America has to act. But, when America acts, other nations accuse us of being 'hegemonistic', of engaging in 'unilateralism', of behaving as if we're the only nation on earth that counts. We are.
P. J. O'Rourke
