Letitia Baldrige

  • ... there are two types of the male species of Homo sapiens: men, and Italian men.

  • In Rome people seem to love with more zest, murder with more imagination, submit to creative urges more often, and lose the sense of logic more easily than in any other place.

  • A balanced guest list of mixed elements is to a successful party what the seasoning is to a culinary triumph.

  • There is no substitute for the riches gained on a lifetime basis by the young American who studies or works abroad.

  • ... if the right man does not come along, there are many fates far worse. One is to have the wrong man come along.
