Famous quotes containing the words game, birthday and/or party:
“Life is a game in which the rules are constantly changing; nothing spoils a game more than those who take it seriously. Adultery? Phooey! You should never subjugate yourself to another nor seek the subjugation of someone else to yourself. If you follow that Crispian principle you will be able to say Phooey, too, instead of reaching for your gun when you fancy yourself betrayed.”
—Quentin Crisp (b. 1908)
“Although Im trying very hard
To sound unlike a birthday card,
Thats all this is: so you may find it
Full of all that lies behind it
Admiration; friendship too;
And hope that in the future you
Reap ever richer revenue.”
—Philip Larkin (19221986)
“I am proud to be a member of a party that opens its doors to all menand closes its hearts to none.”
—Lyndon Baines Johnson (19081973)
