Famous quotes containing the words heat and/or season:

    And suddenly, to be dying
    Is not a little or mean or cheap thing,
    Only wearying, the heat unbearable ...
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    The theater is a baffling business, and a shockingly wasteful one when you consider that people who have proven their worth, who have appeared in or been responsible for successful plays, who have given outstanding performances, can still, in the full tide of their energy, be forced, through lack of opportunity, to sit idle season after season, their enthusiasm, their morale, their very talent dwindling to slow gray death. Of finances we will not even speak; it is too sad a tale.
    Ilka Chase (1905–1978)
