My favorite bit of wisdom
Reviewed in the United States on June 15, 2017
When national politics, world affairs, declining health... or other depressing issues threaten to put me down, I always need a re-read of HARVEY. It makes a sunny day brighter and has a way of shattering and dispersing hovering clouds on dreary days. My favorite bit of wisdom, courtesy of Elwood P. Dowd, in the words of his mother: "In this world...you must be oh, so smart or oh, so pleasant." to which Elwood adds his own view of the matter, to wit: "For years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." To which I say, GOOD ON YOU, Elwood, not to mention Mary Chase.
