Famous quotes containing the words cohen and/or harry:

    Seven to eleven is a huge chunk of life, full of dulling and forgetting. It is fabled that we slowly lose the gift of speech with animals, that birds no longer visit our windowsills to converse. As our eyes grow accustomed to sight they armour themselves against wonder.
    —Leonard Cohen (b. 1934)

    Comes from a fine family. So she tells me. Brother’s a priest, all that. But, you know, death, disaster, unfortunate investments. One day she’s a little princess, up on the hill. Next, she’s down there, working the bars for the best she can.
    Peter Prince, British screenwriter, and Stephen Frears. Harry (Bill Hunter)
