Dorothy Parker (née Rothschild; August 22, 1893 – June 7, 1967) was an American poet, writer, critic, and satirist based in New York; she was known for her wit, wisecracks, and eye for 20th-century urban foibles.
She runs the gamut of emotions from A to B.
Desire nothing, give up all desires and be happy.
Beware of getting what you want. It’s bound to disappoint you.
—Jodi Picoult in Sing You Home
