Famous quotes containing the words groups and/or fighter:

    In America every woman has her set of girl-friends; some are cousins, the rest are gained at school. These form a permanent committee who sit on each other’s affairs, who “come out” together, marry and divorce together, and who end as those groups of bustling, heartless well-informed club-women who govern society. Against them the Couple of Ehepaar is helpless and Man in their eyes but a biological interlude.
    Cyril Connolly (1903–1974)

    A pleasant smell of frying sausages

    Photograph of what seems to be girls lounging around
    An old fighter bomber, circa 1942 vintage.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
