"Texas, they'll tell you, is where you have to go to find the tallest monuments, the highest state capitol, the greatest climatic range, the most churches per capita. Also the most airports and most farms. They'll swear up and down that only Texas produces the pinkest grapefruit, the most cattle, sheep, mohair goats, roses, spinach, bees and nuts - pecans, that is - among countless other things. And that's only the beginning. They go on and on and on...Don't be offended if Texans fail to thank you for compliments about their state; they are weaned on a sublime conviction that everything in Texas is the biggest or best or both... Once when I told a Texan his wife and daughter must surely be the loveliest women on earth, he looked mildly surprised and drawled forthrightly: "Why Hell, yes!" It never occurred to him that they might not be. Anything in Texas that isn't the biggest or best is bound to be the smallest or the worst; there is no mediocrity."
