Famous quotes containing the word push:

    Unless your baby becomes uncomfortable and tries to push away, don’t worry that you’re cuddling too much. That way, when she reaches adolescence and goes through a normal period of being terribly embarrassed even to be seen with you in public, you’ll have some memories to tide you over until she comes around again.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    What’re you always trying to push me in the gutter for, Dixon? I got as much right on the sidewalk as you have. Don’t talk to me about “rights.” You’re a hood and a murderer.
    Ben Hecht (1893–1964)

    Why runners make lousy communists. In a word, individuality. It’s the one characteristic all runners, as different as they are, seem to share.... Stick with it. Push yourself. Keep running. And you’ll never lose that wonderful sense of individuality you now enjoy. Right, comrade?
    quoted in Guardian (London, Dec. 29, 1984)
