Famous quotes containing the word killing:

    But when I don’t smoke I scarcely feel as if I’m living. I don’t feel as if I’m living unless I’m killing myself.
    Russell Hoban (b. 1925)

    His mind resembled the vast amphitheatre, the Colisæum at Rome. In the centre stood his judgement, which, like a mighty gladiator, combated those apprehensions that, like the wild beasts of the Arena, were all around the cells, ready to be let out upon him. After a conflict, he drove them back into their dens; but not killing them, they were still assailing him.
    James Boswell (1740–1795)

    Of course, killing you is killing myself. It’s the same thing. But, you know, I’m pretty tired of both of us.
    Orson Welles (1915–1985)
