A collection of gems from the fabulously droll Roger Sterling that will have you reaching for that martini and wilfully falling into the world of 1960s Madison Avenue, the world of the 'mad men'.

When God closes a door, he opens a dress.A" I guess what I'm saying is at some point we've all parked in the wrong garage.A" Can I just fire everyone?A" "When a man gets to a point in his life when his name's on the building, he can get an unnatural sense of entitlement." "It looks like you're all going to engage in a little mid-level camaraderie, so I'll be on my way." "You don't know how to drink. Your whole generation, you drink for the wrong reasons. My generation, we drink because it's good, because it feels better than unbuttoning your collar, because we deserve it. We drink because it's what men do." 

Roger Sterling (a fictional character on the AMC TV series Mad Men) founded the Sterling Cooper Draper Price advertising agency. A World War II veteran, Roger has suffered two heart attacks. In the past he's tried to change his hard-living ways, but is now smoking and drinking again.
