The laconic president

American President Calvin Coolidge had a reputation in private of being a man of few words and was nicknamed “Silent Cal.” A possibly apocryphal story has it that a matron seated next to him at a dinner said to him, “I made a bet today that I could get more than two words out of you.” His reply: “You lose.”

“V”

debooWORKS:

one of the best movie dialogue ever!

Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition! The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it’s my very good honor to meet you and you may call me “V”.
