Famous quotes containing the word stand:

    Your damned nonsense can I stand twice or once, but sometimes always, by God, never.
    Hans Richter (1843–1916)

    Has anyone ever told you that you overplay your various roles rather severely, Mr. Kaplan? First you’re the outraged Madison Avenue man who claims he’s been mistaken for someone else. Then you play the fugitive from justice, supposedly trying to clear his name of a crime he knows he didn’t commit. And now you play the peevish lover stung by jealously and betrayal. It seems to me you fellows could stand a little less training from the FBI and a little more from the Actors Studio.
    Ernest Lehman (b.1920)

    I can still stand on life’s narrowest footing: but who would I be were I to show you this art. Would you like to see a ropedancer?
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
