Famous quotes containing the words company, gas and/or light:

    The old idea that the joke was not good enough for the company has been superseded by the new aristocratic idea that the company was not worthy of the joke. They have introduced an almost insane individualism into that one form of intercourse which is specially and uproariously communal. They have made even levities into secrets. They have made laughter lonelier than tears.
    Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936)

    Droning a drowsy syncopated tune,
    Rocking back and forth to a mellow croon,
    I heard a Negro play.

    Down on Lenox Avenue the other night
    By the pale dull pallor of an old gas light
    Langston Hughes (1902–1967)

    I see my light come shining
    From the west unto the east
    Any day now, any day now,
    I shall be released.
    Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941)
