1001 Greatest Things Ever Said About Massachusetts by Patricia Harris

Maybe its how close we are to history here that makes Massachusetts such an interesting place to write about, or the sense that this was the initial American frontier, or the literary legacy of so many great Massachusetts writers. --Alice Hoffman I guess God made Boston on a wet Sunday. --Raymond Chandler Ill tell you what PAYGO means, when youre a senator from Massachusetts, when youre a colleague of Ted Kennedy, pay go means: You pay, and he goes ahead and spends. --George W. Bush Dont Blame Me-- Im from Massachusetts -- Post-Watergate bumper sticker Being a conservative Republican in Massachusetts is a bit like being a cattle rancher at a vegetarian convention. -- Mitt Romney Puritanism-- The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy. -- H.L. Mencken All I can claim for Boston is that it is the thinking center of the continent, and therefore of the planet. -- Oliver Wendell Holmes The [Boston] Pops are a good melting pot of music. I guess were the classiest jukebox in the world. -- Arthur Fiedler Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, had always been the systematic organization of hatreds, and Massachusetts politics had been as harsh as the climate. -- Henry Adams The Red Sox are a religion. Every year we re-enact the agony and the temptation in the Garden. Baseball childs play? Well, up here in Boston, its a passion play. -- George Higgins Its spring and the saps are running. -- early Boston Marathon joke Boston is the perfect city for the Democrats, cause the Democratsare like the Red Sox. Theyre optimistic in the spring, concerned in the summer, and ready to choke in the fall. -- Jay Leno, on selection of Boston for 2004 Democratic National Convention Chowderheads, rejoice!
