The publication-date of this book predates the release-date - 1967 - of the
song, "Different Strokes," by Syl Johnson, by six years. It's possible that
a view of the preceding matter in the book will show that Lambert's use of
the phrase is different from that of Johnson. IAC, the song was
written by Johnny
Cameron and John Zachary - whoever they are/were - and not by Johnson. So,
that's it, then.

"And l think this is the most important element to retain[:] _different
strokes for different folks!_"

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
