George V. Denny

A Quote by George V. Denny, Jr. on depression, friendship, and words

In the depths of depression, I returned to my native state of North Carolina and heard an old negro I had known who was very fond of using big words, talking to some of his friends about the status quo. After an exchange of greetings, I asked him if he knew what status quo meant. "Yes suh," he said, "I sho' does. It means de mess we is in."
