“Reading Ernest Hemingway’s  The Sun Also Rises’ written in 1926, I noted several references to HL Mencken, an American writer, satarist, et al .

Fascinated by his influence on some of the characters, I googled him to find this- written in 1920 –  among many wonderful quotes…

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

The Story of the Cracked Pot

THE STORY OF THE CRACKED POT

“A water bearer in India had two large pots, each hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master’s house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

For a full two years, this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water in his master’s house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, perfect to the end for which it was made.
