|American Literary Writer – Lois Pemberton: |
Who inspired those around her by saying;
With imagination... all things are possible
Lois Pemberton traveled in literary circles that included the likes of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Robert Benchley, Robert E. Sherwood and George S. Kaufman. These American authors, including Pemberton, met for lunch each day at the Algonquin Hotel from 1919 until roughly 1929. At these luncheons they engaged in wisecracks, wordplay and witticisms that, through the newspaper columns of Round Table members, were disseminated across the country.
"Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary."
