The Vegetable: Or, from President to Postman
from President to postman
F. SCOTT FITZGERALD
“Any man who doesn’t want to get on in the world, to make a million dollars, and maybe even park his toothbrush in White House, hasn’t got as much to him as a good dog has—he’s nothing more or less than a vegetable.”
—From a Current Magazine.
