David W. McFadden Quotes
“HOW TO BECOME PART OF NATURE
Pay your bills promptly
Keep track of everything you spend
Take taxis everywhere you go
Avoid people you’re naturally attracted to
Discuss the weather with strangers
Make random phone calls at 2 a.m.
Neither apologize nor forgive
Always wear blue suits
Tell long boring stories
Yawn when people are talking to you
Avoid sex whenever possible
Complain loudly about unions
Cultivate a British accent
Make obscene gestures at nuns
Never fart in public
Rattle change in your pocket
Flush newspapers down public toilets
Lecture people about smoking
Be the first to pass out at parties
Debunk current fads
Keep your eyes unfocussed
This is all you need to know. Within three years
of following these rules carefully
you will be part of nature.
