Kay Francis in A Notorious Affair (1930).
Just because you fell in love with the river
doesn’t mean you must feed it your bones.
—Jeanann Verlee, from “Polyamory, With Knives,” published in Nailed Magazine (via myshoesuntied)
President Nixon: How many did we kill in Laos? …
National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger: In the Laotian thing, we killed about ten, fifteen [thousand].
Nixon: See, the attack in the North [Vietnam] that we have in mind … power plants, whatever’s left – POL [petroleum], the docks … And, I still think we ought to take the dikes out now. Will that drown people?
Kissinger: About two hundred thousand people.
Nixon: No, no, no, I’d rather use the nuclear bomb. Have you got that, Henry?
Kissinger: That, I think, would just be too much.
Nixon: The nuclear bomb, does that bother you? … I just want you to think big, Henry, for Christsakes.
