Panache

Here is something I wish I had written but haven’t:

 My deepest personal regret is that I have never done anything with panache. I have never shot a lion or driven a Porsche to Dakar or run a line of credit in a brothel in Dar es Salaam. Just once in my life it would have been nice to do something with panache. Anything. Preferably in the company of Sophia Loren.

From Joe Queenan’s “Requiem for a Dream,” Weekly Standard. August 8th 2011.
