Famous quotes containing the words brooks and/or terry:

    What did you hit her for?
    I’ll let you in on something, she’s a lush, the lady. After she bends the elbow a few times, she begins to see things. Rats, roaches, snakes, bats, you know. A sock in the kisser’s the only thing that’ll bring her out of it.
    —Richard Brooks (1912–1992)

    Usefulness! It is not a fascinating word, and the quality is not one of which the aspiring spirit can dream o’ nights, yet on the stage it is the first thing to aim at.
    —Ellen Terry (1847–1928)
