„Who am I to talk? That’s a fair question, and one which deserves a better answer than I can give you.“

—  Gracie Allen American actress and comedienne 1895 - 1964
Context: Who am I to talk? That’s a fair question, and one which deserves a better answer than I can give you. … Come to think of it, who are you? Whoever you are, I sympathize with you. I sympathize with everybody; that’s what I get for being a candidate myself. Let them call us nonentities. Who cares? A nonenitiy can be just as famous as anybody else if enough people know about him. But let’s leave personalities out of this and just talk about me. Ch. 1 : Government jobs pay big money
