Quote from Paris in The Long Morrow

Paris: Do you want your kid to spend her life behind the counter at Dunkin' Donuts? Do you?
Woman: No.
Paris: Because that's where she's headed. Selling chocolate donuts and glazed fritters for the next 40 years to people in business suits who actually gave a crap about their academic future.
Woman: I just want her to get into a good school. She has such potential.
Paris: Well, so did Charles Manson.
Woman: What?
Paris: Look at her. Frankly, it may already be too late. I don't particularly like to take on such meek, diffident cases. Do you even know what "diffident" means? [the girl shakes her head] That's okay. That knowledge isn't really required in the retail doughnut-distribution industry.
