President Lyndon Johnson quote


After being trashed numerous times by the Smothers Brothers, President Johnson wrote them:

"It is part of the price of leadership 
of this great and free nation to be
the target of clever satirists.

You have given the gift of laughter to our people.
May we never grow so somber or
self-important that we fail to
appreciate the humor in our lives."
