"I never travel without my Stetson, but the more I wear it the more I realise that no one wears hats any more. When I was a kid everybody wore hats, especially in Texas, but I get off the plane in Dallas now and I'm the only guy with a hat. It's amazing."
"There comes a time when the mind takes a higher plane of knowledge but can never prove how it got there."
"On our plane knowledge and ignorance are the immemorial adversaries."
"Education doesn't change life much. It just lifts trouble to a higher plane of regard."
