Quoteable: Psmith, Journalist

"Full steam ahead, and trust to luck.  The chances are that, if we go on long enough, we shall eventually arrive somewhere.  After all Columbus didn't know that America existed when he set out.  All he knew was some highly interesting fact about an egg.  What that was, I do not at the moment recall, but it bucked Columbus up like a tonic.  It made him fizz ahead like a two-year-old."

--Psmith speaking, from P.G. Wodehouse's Psmith, Journalist
