His Famous Quips and QuotesOne of the leading endearing qualities of Rogers was his endless number of notable quotes. for example, he penned the term, “ I never met a person I didn’t like.” He even provided an Epitaph for his own gravestone. He said, “When I die, my epitaph or whatever you call those signs on gravestones goes to read, “I joked about every prominent man of my time, but I never met a person I didn’t like.” I’m so pleased with it that I can hardly wait to die, so it is often carved.”
