Famous quotes containing the word confidential:
“How it is I know not; but there is no place like a bed for confidential disclosures between friends. Man and wife, they say, there open the very bottom of their souls to each other; and some old couples often lie and chat over old times till nearly morning. Thus, then, in our hearts honeymoon, lay I and Queequega cosy, loving pair.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
“The Enemy, who wears
Her mothers usual face
And confidential tone,
Has access; doubtless stares
Into her writing case
And listens on the phone.”
—Phyllis McGinley (19051978)
