Hey diddle diddle, The cat and the fiddle.
Diddling, rightly considered, is a compound, of which the ingredients are minuteness, interest, perseverance, ingenuity, audacity, nonchalance, originality, impertinence, and grin.
Concerning Interest– Your diddler is guided by self-interest. He scorns to diddle for the mere sake of the diddle. He has an object in view– his pocket– and yours. He regards always the main chance. He looks to number one. You are number two, and must look to yourself…. Edgar Allan Poe.
Comments: Donald Trump is the art of the deal, the Democratic party is the art of the diddle.
