Famous quotes containing the words band, lew, big, road, long and/or yellow:

    Nothing makes a man feel older than to hear a band coming up the street and not to have the impulse to rush downstairs and out on to the sidewalk.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    I’m going to my room now. Nobody must disturb me. Nobody, do you understand? I—I sleep during the day.
    Griffin Jay, Randall Faye, and Lew Landers. Armand Tesla (Bela Lugosi)

    The world and life’s too big to pass for a dream,
    Robert Browning (1812–1889)

    Evil can be got very easily and exists in quantity: the road to her is very smooth, and she lives near by. But between us and virtue the gods have placed the sweat of our brows; the road to her is long and steep, and it is rough at first; but when a man has reached the top, then she is easy to attain, although before she was hard.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)

    The statements of science are hearsay, reports from a world outside the world we know. What the poet tells us has long been known to us all, and forgotten. His knowledge is of our world, the world we are both doomed and privileged to live in, and it is a knowledge of ourselves, of the human condition, the human predicament.
    John Hall Wheelock (1886–1978)

    Ask a toad what beauty is, the supreme beauty, the to kalon. He will tell you it is his lady toad with her two big round eyes coming out of her little head, her large flat snout, yellow belly, brown back.
    Voltaire [François Marie Arouet] (1694–1778)
