Ogdenational

Post-it note with a typed quote from Morris Bishop:

Free from flashiness, free from trashiness
 
Is the essence of ogdenashiness.
 
Rich, original, rash and rational
 
Stands the monument ogdenational.


The quote comes from Bishop's writing in Time Magazine upon Ogden Nash's death in 1971.

Found in "I'm A Stranger Here Myself" by Ogden Nash. Published by Little, Brown. Terrific jacket art by Maurice Sendak.

Love it, my father had a small volume of Ogden Nash's writing and it was a favorite of mine.
