Bon mot for the week

"A club is a place where mediocrity is made to feel comfortable."

Joseph P. Blodgett

[But who, pray, is Mr Blodgett? He seems to be widely quoted on the Internet, and apparently is/was a painter, but further details are hard to come by. Find A Grave has a memorial for someone of that name who lived from 1820-1844, but I suspect our witty artist is more contemporary.]
