Edna Ferber quotes Ms. Stein as saying: "If everybody loved everybody there would be no war." That's about the level of Gertrude Stein's profundity. Of all the no-talents ever thrown up by modernism, she may be the Queen. The punishment for liking Gertrude Stein is that you have to read her. Her only skill was serving as a model for Picasso's famous portrait -- and even then, he could only finish the thing once he'd sent her away. Her incoherence is contagious. Just thinking about her, I lose the ability to compose a cogent paragraph.

Gertrude Stein says "that's enough"
(I know that that's not enough now)

dumb lyrics, I know, but they sound MUCH better when sung.
