Rex Stout Quote
One trouble with living beyond your deserved number of years is that there's always some reason to live another year. And I'd like to live another year so that Nixon won't be President. If he's re-elected I'll have to live another four years.
Nixon was re-elected in 1972, but Stout survived his August 1974 resignation from the Presidency by more than a year. - The New York Times - "Rex Stout, 85, Gives Clues on Good Writing"
