  • Oh, that's the best! Another of my favorites: Ben Franklin explaining why he won't tackle the first draft of the Declaration of Independence:

    "Mr. Adams, but Mr. Adams
    The things I write are only light extemporanea.
    I won't put politics on paper--it's a mania.
    So I refuse
    To use a pen
    In Pennsylvania."
    --Benjamin Franklin in 1776, "But Mr. Adams"

  • "Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song
    A medley of extemporanea
    And love is a thing that can never go wrong
    and I am Marie of Romania."
    ~ Dorothy Parker
