Famous quotes containing the words words and/or expressions:

    How often you, spurned, will run to my door, when your strong words shall have fallen into a sob, and a trembling horror will begin from your sad tears.
    Propertius Sextus (c. 50–16 B.C.)

    Its idea of “production value” is spending a million dollars dressing up a story that any good writer would throw away. Its vision of the rewarding movie is a vehicle for some glamour-puss with two expressions and eighteen changes of costume, or for some male idol of the muddled millions with a permanent hangover, six worn-out acting tricks, the build of a lifeguard, and the mentality of a chicken-strangler.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)
