"Whether it's the best of times or the worst of times, it's the only time we've got"
Buchwald, who wanted to join the Marine Corps during the Second World War was not old enough to join it without the consent of his legal guardians. Therefore, he had bribed a drunkard with half pint whiskey so he may sign it as his legal guardian. He had been a part of the Fourth Marine Aircraft during his time with the Marine Corps from 1942 to 1945. He had also spent a couple of years in Pacific Theatre and was finally discharged from his services as a Sergeant.
Art Buchwald quotes are laden with wit and thoughtfulness. This is what he said about the Marines: “In the Marines, they don't have much use for humorists, they beat my brains in."
