Famous quotes containing the words company and/or services:

    Men with secrets tend to be drawn to each other, not because they want to share what they know but because they need the company of the like-minded, the fellow afflicted.
    Don Delillo (b. 1926)

    It seems I impregnated Marge
    So I do rather feel, by and large,
    Some cash should be tendered
    For services rendered,
    But I can’t quite decide what to charge.
