William McPherson


Last quote by William McPherson

The rich are all alike, to revise Tolstoy's famous words, but the poor are poor in their own particular ways. I started life comfortably middle-class, maybe upper-middle class; now, like a lot of other people walking the streets of America today, I am poor. To put it directly, I have no money. Does this embarrass me? Of course. . . . It's humiliating to be poor, to be dependent on the kindness of family and friends and government subsidies.feedback

William McPherson said, “I chose retirement because I was under the illusion – perhaps delusion is the more accurate word – that I could make a living as a writer and The Post offered to keep me on their medical insurance program, which at the time was very good and very cheap. The pension would start 12 years later when I was 65. What cost a dollar at the time I accepted the offer, would cost $1.44 when the checks began.”.
