Levant Garde


The pianist Oscar Levant became known as much for his wit as for his musical skills.  I love him in my favorite movie “An American in Paris”.  Here are 4 of his best:

“The first thing in the morning I do is brush my teeth and sharpen my tongue.”

“I’ve given up reading books; it takes my mind off myself.”

“I am no more humble than my talents require.”

“What the world needs is more geniuses with humility; there are so few of us left.”
