Here are the best Ogden Nash quotes spoken by one of the world's most unique poets.
  • Candy, is dandy, but Liquor, is quicker.
    If you don't want to work, you have to work to earn enough money so that you won't have to work.
    A husband is a guy who tells you when you've got on too much lipstick
    and helps you with your girdle when your hips stick.
    Progress might have been alright once, but it has gone on too long.
    Middle age is when you've met so many people that every new person you meet reminds you of someone else.
    I think that I shall never see A billboard as lovely as a tree. Perhaps unless the billboards fall, I'll never see a tree at all. Beneath this slab John Brown is stowed. He watched the ads And not the road. Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, And that's what parents were created for. I do not like to get the news, because there has never been an era when so many things were going so right for so many of the wrong persons. There is only one way to achieve happiness on this terrestrial ball, and that is to have either a clear conscience or none at all.

    That’s not to say that ogden nash was not a man of deep poetry. Although not all of his works were silly and just to make people laugh.
    Echoes Main Biography Sample Poetry Inspired Poems ... Bibliography "... my field the minor idiocies of humanity" The Man Behind the Glasses
    by Greg Cornell “The Eel”
    I don’t mind eels
    Except as meals,
    And the way they feels.”
    This poem typifies the work of Ogden Nash, a man of great “light verse” poetry.
    Light verse poetry is sometimes satirical, sometimes funny, but usually never emotional or weighty. That’s not to say that Ogden Nash was not a man of deep poetry. Although not all of his works were silly and just to make people laugh. Most of Nash's poetry was written for children, for people of all ages, mainly to make them laugh; as he said himself in an interview, "... my field the minor idiocies of humanity". Born on a hot summer day, August 19 th , 1902, Fredrick Ogden Nash came into this world, in the arms of Edmund Strudwick Nash and Mattie Chenault Nash in Rye, New York. Due to financial problems in his family, he had to drop out of college and get a job. He worked as a bond salesman and claims that “the only bond I ever sold was to my god-mother. Nash went on to work as an advertising copywriter in Doubleday and Company, a publishing company. He was a staff member of the magazine, The New Yorker and pursued his career in writing and literature.

    Biography Base Home Link To Us Search Biographies: Browse Biographies A B C D ... Z Ogden Nash Biography Frederic Ogden Nash (August 19, 1902 - May 19, 1971) was an American poet, best known for writing pithy, funny, light verse.
    Ogden Nash was born in Rye, New York in 1902. His father owned and operated an import-export company, and because of business obligations, Nash's family relocated often.
    In 1920 Nash entered Harvard University, only to drop out a year later. He worked his way through a series of jobs, eventually landing a position as a copywriter at a Doubleday publishing house, where he first began to write poetry.
    In 1931 Nash published his first collection of poems, Hard Lines, earning him national recognition. Some of his poems reflected an antiestablishment feeling. For example, one verse, entitled "Common Sense", asks: “Why did the lord give us agility if not to evade responsibility" .
    When Nash wasn’t writing poems, he made guest appearances on comedy and radio shows. Mr. Nash also occupied his time touring the United States and England, giving lectures at colleges and universities.
    Nash died in 1971 and is interred in North Hampton, New Hampshire.

He moved here in 1934, three years after marrying a Baltimore girl, Frances Leonard, and lived here most of the rest of his life. (When he returned to Baltimore after having moved to New York for a brief time, he wrote, "I could not love New York. Had I not loved Balti-more.") orange being one of the few words in the language, along with silver and pilgrim The Cobra T his creature fills its mouth with venom
