Elsa Maxwell Quote

Fight fire with fire. If you must have bores, always put them together or at the same table... bores have an effervescent chemical reaction on one another at a party. They invariably have a marvelous time trading banalities in the absence of competition. Clichés roll trippingly off the tongue like sparkling epigrams and trite observations acquire depth sinking into receptive minds.
