Famous quotes containing the words stock, airport and/or express:

    Death and life were not
    Till man made up the whole,
    Made lock, stock and barrel
    Out of his bitter soul,
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Airplanes are invariably scheduled to depart at such times as 7:54, 9:21 or 11:37. This extreme specificity has the effect on the novice of instilling in him the twin beliefs that he will be arriving at 10:08, 1:43 or 4:22, and that he should get to the airport on time. These beliefs are not only erroneous but actually unhealthy.
    Fran Lebowitz (b. 1950)

    Becoming Father the Nurturer rather than just Father the Provider enables a man to fully feel and express his humanity and his masculinity. Fathering is the most masculine thing a man can do.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)
