„Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore,
And that's what parents were created for.“

—  Ogden Nash
Happy Days (1933), "The Parent"; paraphrased variants: Children aren't happy without something to ignore, and that's what parents were created for. Parents were invented to make children happy by giving them something to ignore.

„A door is what a dog is perpetually on the wrong side of.“

—  Ogden Nash, Private Dining-room and Other New Verses
"A Dog's Best Friend Is His Illiteracy" in The Private Dining Room (1953) Paraphrased variant: A door is that which a dog is perpetually on the wrong side of.

„Time who makes the years to whirl
Adorned as he adored you.“

—  Ogden Nash
Many Long Years Ago (1945), A Lady Thinks She Is Thirty, Context: Silly girl, silver girl, Draw the mirror toward you; Time who makes the years to whirl Adorned as he adored you.

„How are we to survive? Solemnity is not the answer, any more than witless and irresponsible frivolity is. I think our best chance lies in humor, which in this case means a wry acceptance of our predicament. We don't have to like it but we can at least recognize its ridiculous aspects, one of which is ourselves.“

—  Ogden Nash
Context: Among other things I think humor is a shield, a weapon, a survival kit... So here we are several billion of us, crowded into our global concentration camp for the duration. How are we to survive? Solemnity is not the answer, any more than witless and irresponsible frivolity is. I think our best chance lies in humor, which in this case means a wry acceptance of our predicament. We don't have to like it but we can at least recognize its ridiculous aspects, one of which is ourselves. Commencement address at his daughter Linell's boarding school, as quoted http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/05/05/AR2005050501359_pf.html in The Washington Post (8 May 2005)

„People expect old men to die,
They do not really mourn old men.“

—  Ogden Nash
Many Long Years Ago (1945), Context: People expect old men to die, They do not really mourn old men. Old men are different. People look At them with eyes that wonder when... People watch with unshocked eyes; But the old men know when an old man dies. "Old Men"

„Abracadabra, thus we learn,
The more you create, the less you earn.“

—  Ogden Nash
Context: Abracadabra, thus we learn, The more you create, the less you earn. The less you earn, the more you're given, The less you lead, the more you're driven, The more destroyed, the more they feed, The more you pay, the more they need The more you earn, the less you keep, And now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul should take If the tax collector hasn't got it before I wake. "One From One Leaves Two" http://holyjoe.net/poetry/nash9.htm
